MADISON – Cortney Zimmerman, of the Spencer FFA, was recently elected to the 2021-22 National FFA Officer Team during the 94th National FFA Convention & Expo, held Oct. 27-30 in Indianapolis, IN.
Zimmerman joins fellow student leaders on the National Officer Team from Delaware, Georgia, Kentucky, Oregon, and Washington, as she begins her post as National FFA Central Region vice president.
A student of South Dakota State University, Zimmerman previously served as Wisconsin FFA state vice president in 2020-21.
Active in the FFA since seventh grade, she was both a middle school and high school FFA officer in the positions of vice president, president, and past president. Her Supervised Agriculture Experiences include Agricultural Education serving as an Agriscience Camp Director through her local FFA chapter, raising and caring for beef cattle and working with her sister raising goats.
Zimmerman is the first national officer from Spencer FFA, and the eighth from Wisconsin – the first since Alicia Hodnik served in 2011-12.
Each year during the National FFA Convention & Expo, six students are elected by delegates to represent the organization as national officers. This year’s process had Zimmerman competing alongside 36 other FFA members from across the county.
