Shawano FFA will celebrate its 75th anniversary in April, and co-advisers Steve Stomberg and Missy Braun are looking for some help in gathering information for the celebration.
“Anytime anybody celebrates 75 years it‘s a milestone,” said Stomberg, who has been an adviser since 1992. “What people have done is impressive.”
They are looking for members who had leadership roles and were state officers.
“We want the stories to see how it’s changed,” said Braun, who is the chapter’s first female adviser.
They also need the names of past chapter presidents for the following years: 1942, 1949, 1976, 1978, 1981, 1989, 1990, 1992 and 1994.
The FFA members have formed a committee to gather information about the group’s past.
“They get to learn more about the history,” said Stomberg, who was Braun’s first agriculture teacher in Gresham. After she got her degree, Braun taught in Gillett before coming to Shawano.
