Two of the newly elected Minnesota State FFA officers are from northwest Minnesota. The 2020-2021 State Treasurer is Elaina Knott from the Thief River Falls FFA Chapter. “I’m super excited to make connections with FFA members throughout the state and to see the growth and progress they’ll experience throughout this organization. It’s all about making those personal connections,” said Knott. “It will be different this year. We won’t get in-person time as much this year. This will be a learning experience for me as well to learn how to communicate online.” The 2020-2021 State Sentinel is Laney Swiers from the Mahnomen FFA Chapter. “It’s been my dream since I’ve been a greenhand to serve. This will be a great experience and I cannot wait to get started.” Knott, Swiers and State President Ben Olander will be attending the University of Minnesota Crookston in the fall.
