Martin County West FFA member Emily Matejka is the new Minnesota FFA President. Matejka is a freshman at South Dakota State University majoring in ag education. “Being a state officer was one of the things I aspired to do within my high school career. I was interested in running as a high school senior, but once I started to prepare, I realized I wasn’t ready. I wasn’t in tune with myself,” says Matejka. “Once I got into college and found my identity, I could be authentic to myself and I was in a better position to run for state office. I’m able to see more about myself and share that with others.”
