The FFA tribute this week goes to Eric Wisely, Illinois State FFA vice president.

Eric recently completed his term as Illinois State FFA vice president. He didn't grow up in a production background, but grew up with horses, which led him to FFA with an equine science SAE.

During his term as vice president, he enjoyed recognizing FFA members at the state convention as well as awarding the chapter awards.

The weekly FFA Chapter Tribute is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the good work of your local chapter. Tell us about what you're doing, give us some history from your group and tell our viewers of the work you do in the community. FFA chapters across the country deserve recognition for the work they do, make sure we include yours.

To have your chapter considered for this weekly feature, send along information about your group by e-mail to Max Armstrong at [email protected]. They'll get your group on the list of those that will be covered in the future. It's a chance to share your story beyond the local community.
