Fresh country fundraiser

Fresh Country is our annual meats & treats fundraiser to help fund our chapter's LDE trips. Every Wylie FFA member is required to sell a minimum of 10 items or have a buyer donate $10 in your name to the fundraiser (this will equal one item).

Wylie ffa spooktacular jackpot

Our chapter is hosting a jackpot show on October 30th! No Wylie students will be allowed to show in the jackpot. All students who plan on showing at the Wylie Show and Sale at the end of the year MUST volunteer to work at the Spooktacular Jackpot. Any member who shows in or doesn't volunteer for the jackpot will forfeit their eligibility to show at Wylie Show and Sale.

This person has been working hard at the barn with their goat. They have asked lots of questions about their project and are setting themselves up for a successful first year of showing livestock. Our barn kid of the month is.... to be announced at our meeting! ;)

Meet your officers

Each month we are going to introduce one of our chapter officers. Up next is Daphnee! Daphnee Schlittler is our 2021-2022 Wylie FFA Secretary. She is a sophomore in high school and a 6th year FFA member. Her SAE projects are showing market sheep, chickens, pigs, and breeding rabbits. Daphnee has competed on the Quiz, as well as the Senior Chapter Conducting leadership development event (LDE) teams. She has also participated on the Vet Med and Poultry Judging career development event (CDE) teams. One piece of advice that she would like to give FFA members is to always try something once. Your time in the Wylie FFA is limited and you don't want to miss out on something you might enjoy. All of us like our comfort zone but when we take a chance and try something new we can find more opportunities that we will enjoy.
