State Officer Candidates

Name: Cheryl (Helmeid) Zimmerman

Office(s) Served: 1985-86 State FFA Reporter

Education: B.S. UW-Madison. Double majored in Agricultural Education and Agricultural Journalism

Current Position: Wisconsin FFA State Executive Director

Testimonial: Serving as a state FFA officer really helped to give direction to my life and future career. I started my college education at one school and then the year I served as a state officer realized where my true interests were in agriculture and working with people. It was the year I was a state officer that I decided to transfer to UW-Madison and major in agricultural education and agricultural journalism. Serving as a state officer opened so many doors to me including the opportunity to continue as a WLC and MFE presenter. It definitely helped me as an agricultural education instructor/FFA advisor and now it is an absolute joy to have the opportunity to help state officers receive the awesome benefits of serving as an officer and the doors it opens.
