Wacky Wednesday is a busy night for FFA members in Section 9.  It includes 4 Career Development Events (CDE) and Section 9 officer elections.  In Quiz Bowl, teams answer questions regarding different areas of the agriculture industry.  Olympia FFA attempted to answer 15 questions in the categories of business, mechanics, science, soils, and FFA.  Participants included Josie Litwiller, Rebecca Magee, Cavit Schempp, and Molly Schempp.  Ag Mechanics is a CDE consisting of a variety of mechanical subjects.  Olympia senior Auston Southerland, put his welding skills to work in the welding portion of the event and junior Dawson Banister was hands-on in the electricity portion.  Each student also took a test relating to their subject area.  Agriculture business is a large area of study, but sophomores Josie Litwiller and Cavit Schempp along with Auston Southerland were up to the task!  They took a test, answering many math and business scenario questions.  The night concluded with the process of electing the new Section 9 officer team.  Olympia junior Molly Schempp applied to once again, serve on the team.  Candidates prepared a series of speeches, which were presented to a group of student delegates.  Molly was elected as 2018/2019 Reporter!  She will serve the Section for the coming year through chapter visits, conferences, and hosting workshops.  Senior Auston Southerland reflected on the evening saying, “I had a great learning experience with all the other welders at the competition. FFA has truly helped me with welding.”
