Jennings FFA was well represented at the recent 90th Louisiana State FFA Convention & Expo held this summer in Alexandria, LA. Trevor Touchet was elected to serve as Vice-President representing Area III for 2019-2020. Trevor Touchet is a 2019 graduate of Jennings High School where he was a very active FFA member. As an FFA member, Trevor competed in many Career and Leadership Development events such as Creed Speaking, Land Evaluation, Meat Identification, Prepared Public Speaking, Parliamentary Procedure, and Poultry Evaluation. Trevor’s fondest memory of competing is when he was able to compete at the National Land Evaluation contest in Oklahoma his sophomore year, placing 9th individually in the nation. When Trevor is not doing anything FFA related, he is either at his local park playing basketball or hanging out and fishing with friends.
Trevor aspires to attend college to pursue a degree in soil science and to hopefully one day work for the NRCS. This year, as part of the 10-member state officer team, he has already attended a week-long National Leadership Conference for State Officers in Mississippi, which is a training series for state FFA officers that builds individual and teamwork skills. It helps officer teams identify their strengths and weaknesses as a group and learn advanced interpersonal communication strategies and presentation delivery techniques. In addition, the state officer team presented at Area FFA Camps to students from around Louisiana at FFA Leadership Camps in Woodworth in July. Trevor and his state officer team has also traveled to Washington, D.C. for the annual State Officer Summit. Trevor will be an instrumental part in leading the Louisiana FFA Association and the many events and activities that go along with being a state officer.
Congratulations to Trevor Touchet for representing Jefferson Davis Parish with integrity and pride. We are extremely proud of this young man’s present and future success.
