Commemorating the end of an atypical campaign and program year for the Wisconsin FFA Foundation, the Foundation board approved four new board members. The Foundation marked a $463,000 campaign total raised for agricultural education and FFA, despite program disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Foundation also recognized the service and contributions of three retiring members: Danielle Waterworth of CNH Industrial, Ginger Braml of AgroChem and Kathleen Murphy of TASC.
The Foundation Board is now led by 2021-22 President Jessie Kreke, who serves as a senior marketing manager for Culver Franchising Systems, LLC.
New board members representing Wisconsin agriculture and FFA sponsors are Natalie Killion of the Green Bay Area Public School District; Tom Kwak of Chippewa Valley Bean Co., Inc; Aaron Tigert of Compeer Financial; and Nathan Weinkauf of Case IH Agriculture.
