March 24, 2023 - Eureka, CA - FFA Officers represent Eureka High School at the California State FFA Leadership Conference in Ontario, CA. 

More than 7,000 high school students, advisors and guests attend this annual event which is the largest statewide Career Technical Student Organization (CTSO) conference in California.

EHS Agriculture Teacher and FFA Advisor, Alissa Sarvinski says “Attending this event with students is one of the favorite parts of my job. I love to see students discovering options for their future, setting goals and making friends that will last a lifetime.” 

The event attracts young agricultural leaders from 356 chapters throughout the state and encourages students to develop personal and team leadership skills, discover agricultural careers, establish lasting friendships and strive for success. 

Ava Jones, Eureka FFA Junior says a great part is, “Getting to meet FFA members from all over the state that we know we can rely on for future years.”

Highlights of the students’ trip were meeting other youth with an interest in agriculture while participating in leadership workshops, the college & career fair, and delegate sessions.

Eureka FFA Senior, Noelani Westbrook-Hubbart was recently accepted to Chico State to major in Agriculture Education and made a recap video of the memorable event. She says, “I love having a home away from home with so many people who have the same values as me. I feel like I learned so much.”

Eureka FFA is in the middle of their Career Development Events season with students competing in public speaking, parliamentary procedure, dairy products judging, veterinary science judging, best informed greenhand, livestock judging and the farm power contest. Next up is State FFA speaking finals and the Fresno State Field Day.  

Plus, Charli Roberts and Whilder Kijsriopas were recently selected to be next year’s North Coast Region FFA Vice Presidents and Lily Williamson will become the North Coast Region FFA President!
