LA VETA — On Thursday April 20th, the La Veta FFA Chapter held its annual end of the year banquet.

We kicked the night off with opening ceremonies from our officers. We then jumped right into awards, and between the seniors gave their retiring address. Then followed by a slide show from our executive committee. We ended the night with some words of wisdom from Mrs. Rheuby.

Finally we installed our new officers; Gus Andreatta, executive committee, Cavin McKay, sentinel, Brianna Ritchie, historian, Hannah Cordova, reporter, Hannah Andreatta, secretary, Jackie Watson, vice president, and Jaycee Lagow as our new president.
