Senior Brooke Bell represents our red and black dressed in the blue and gold as she accepted the position as one of five vice presidents of the Nebraska State FFA officer team.

Bell will fulfill many duties as vice president. She is responsible for advocating for the organization itself as well as educating other members about different opportunities to be a leader in the agricultural world.

“I was extremely excited. This is something that I have wanted since the eighth grade, and it was completely unbelievable that it was actually coming true,” Bell said.

Bell’s involvement isn’t limited just to FFA. She is also involved in Speech, One-Act, NHS, and Jobs Daughters. Bell often works hard for what she wants and doesn’t stop until she achieves it.

Ever since the eighth grade, Bell has devoted her life to FFA and has dreamed of becoming an officer at the state level. Her inspiration came from viewing previous officers at various FFA events as well as her passion for agriculture. After understanding how important the officers are, Bell wanted to serve at a larger capacity.

“It is a honor to be able to serve FFA and the agriculture industry in this light, and I look forward to what this year has in store for me,” Bell said. “I am blessed with an amazing team that is going to make this year a lot of fun. If I wanted to tell students anything it would be to take a chance and don’t be afraid to dream big. As an eighth grader, my goal seemed far-fetched and unrealistic, but with hard work and determination you never know what you will accomplish.”

Congrats and good luck to Brooke Bell as she advocates for the future of agriculture.
