FFA Foundation Welcomes New Board

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.
