Gary FFA Treasurer, Caitlynn Ayers entered and completed the process to become a Longview District Officer Candidate. There are twenty-three school in the Longview District and Caitlynn had to be top seven to “make the team.” After the Exam over FFA Facts, dates and more, an interview with a panel of Ag Teachers, and giving a 3 minute speech in front of 130 FFA Members and guests, they make their decision. While she did not make the team, BUT SHE MADE HISTORY just by stepping into this process!! We are extremely proud of Caitlynn for her hard work and dedication! Mr. Harvey, Mrs. Shadix and 13 other FFA Members were there to cheer her on and see the amazing process that Caitlynn went through! This will inspire other members to pursue higher FFA offices and participate more activities!
