Mary Schrieber of the East Troy FFA Chapter was elected to a year of service as the 2023-2024 State FFA President during the 94th Wisconsin FFA Convention. Mary’s advisors are Ryan Holle and Katy Vacula. Adam and Therese Schrieber are her parents.
Schrieber is currently pursuing a degree in Political Science and Agricultural Education from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. After graduating, Mary will continue to make an impact on the agriculture industry by becoming either an agricultural lobbyist or an agricultural education teacher.
A three-year chapter officer in East Troy, Mary most recently concluded a year serving as the Wisconsin Association of FFA’s Section X Officer and State Sentinel. While Mary is passionate about all areas of the agriculture industry, her own supervised agricultural experience project revolved around her role as her chapter’s primary beekeeper. In this position, Mary was required to replace supers, monitor hive health, and lead in the harvesting of honey. At the same time, Mary maintained her involvement in the Wisconsin FFA Honors Chorus and competed in a variety of Leadership Development Events while a high school member.
This past year her responsibilities shifted to serving just not at the local level but the state level as well, through the implementation of workshops, conferences, individual chapter visits and much more. “I have come to realize my experiences, while different, serve as a strength which allows me to connect with members and stakeholders from all backgrounds,” Schrieber says of her diverse and somewhat non-traditional agriculture background. As State FFA President this perspective will also help Schrieber lead her teammates to continue to advocate for the role of agricultural education and the FFA across the diverse array of communities throughout the state.
