Brooke Casey from the New London FFA Chapter was elected to a year of service as the 2022-2023 Section Eight State FFA Officer during the 93rd Wisconsin FFA Convention. Her advisor is Crystal Retzlaff. Her parents are Bette O’Brien and Glenn Casey.
Casey plans to attend the University of Wisconsin-River Falls for Pre-Veterinary Medicine, majoring in Animal Science-Meat Animal and then attend UW Madison for Veterinary Medicine, after graduating from UWRF. After completing Vet School, she would like to be a small, large, and equine veterinarian.
Brooke has learned many valuable lessons from FFA, such as the different aspects of FFA and agriculture, in addition to continuing to sharpen her leadership skills. While an active member of her FFA Chapter, she created the Member of the Month, which showcased a new member each month to recognize their hard work and dedication. She wanted to make sure that the members were given the recognition they deserved, as well as encouraging more to get involved.
Brooke realized she was not ready to hang up her blue jacket at her local LDE competition, and that’s where she decided to run for state office. “Serving as a State Officer would allow me to help more people on their FFA journey, to not only improve their agricultural knowledge, but also be able to improve themselves.” Casey is honored to be part of this organization that made her the person she is today.
