Dado Selected as National FFA Officer Candidate
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 07/16/2015
Wisconsin has named its candidate to run for a national FFA officer position later this fall. Ethan Dado from the Amery FFA has been selected to run for the job, in which he will compete for one of six spots in the country to help run the National FFA Organization and lead youth members for a year.
Ethan was raised on a 450-cow dairy farm in Polk County. His family farms over 1,300 acres of corn and soybeans.
Prior to serving as the 2014-15 State FFA Parliamentarian, Dado had a very active FFA career in high school. He served as a chapter officer for three years, including one year as president. He participated in nearly every FFA speaking contest, and was part of the state-winning Parliamentary Procedure team. He
was also a state winner in the dairy and livestock judging contest and placed third as an individual at the national competition.
Dado is currently attending the University of Minnesota, where he is double-majoring in Agriculture Education and Animal Science.
Wisconsin has had several national officers in the past, including Alicia Hodnik of Walworth and Jackie Mundt from Pittsville, who served in recent years.
Each state is allowed to send one national officer candidate to the convention.
