“New Washington FFA officers hope to ‘grow, lead, serve'”

“The new Washington FFA state officers say they hope to grow, lead, serve and inspire the organization’s members in the coming year.

“The new officers were announced May 11 during the final session of the state convention on the Washington State University campus in Pullman. Roughly 2,899 members attended the final session.”

Treasurer Abbie Dorhauer, of Yelm, is a first-generation FFA member. She grew up on a hobby farm with about 20 head of cattle.

“‘No matter who you meet, where you go, you can find someone who’s involved and willing to share their story with you, to switch contact information and be friends from all the way across the state,’ she said.

“Dorhauer plans to attend college, but isn’t yet sure what she hopes to pursue as a major,” by Matthew Weaver, Capital Press. Read more
