A shining star

A North High student who has etched her name into history. 

Aalexias Woolf is North High’s first Future Farmer of America State Officer.

“North High has never had a California state officer so me being the first one I really want to be able to set the example for the younger FFA members,” said Aalexias Woolf.

At the 90th California State FFA Leadership Conference, in front of a crowd of 7,000 plus FFA students, Woolf was selected to the California FFA 2018-2019 officer team.

“I still can’t believe that it’s real.  They’re people that truly empower and motivate so many students through FFA and for me to be able to have this opportunity this next year is truly so, I can’t even describe the words for what I’m feeling,” Woolf said. 

“Knowing that she gets to really show her heart and love of people and agriculture and serving others to 89,000 FFA members in California is incredible.  I’m excited for her to experience that opportunity,” said Natalie Ryan, an FFA Advisor at North High.

Slated as Secretary, Woolf shed her previous FFA jacket for one that is recognized throughout California and across the nation. 

A big stage and a big dream for the agriculture enthusiast who found her passion in a goat barn when at 8 years old. 

Woolf said she wants to show her fellow students you can do anything you set your mind to – something that so far it seems to be true for Woolf.

“Every single thing we do through agriculture and ag education is not only going to prepare you for life after high school, but it’s going to prepare you for anything and everything you set your mind to,” Woolf said. 

As a state FFA officer, Woolf will postpone her freshman year of college to pursue her dream of promoting FFA and agriculture.

She’ll travel up and down the state meeting more than 89,000 FFA members along with agricultural leaders, industry professionals and politicians. 

Woolf plans to go to Fresno State to become an agriculture teacher so that she can continue inspiring young FFA members for years to come.
