June 13, 2024, Convention Highlights & Evaluations


SPRINGFIELD – The 2024 - 2025 Illinois State Officer Team was elected Thursday morning, June 13, 2024, during the 96th Annual Illinois FFA State Convention. The officers were installed immediately following the election and will serve the Illinois Association FFA for the next 12 months.

The newly elected officers are: 

2024 - 2025 Illinois FFA State Officer Team

  • State President, Trenton Payne, Olney FFA Chapter

  • State Vice President,  Brody Will, Dieterich FFA Chapter 

  • State Reporter,   Sidney Stiers, Williamsfield FFA Chapter

  • State Secretary,  Owen Torrance, West Prairie FFA Chapter

  • State Treasurer, Emma Dinges, Amboy FFA Chapter

The five officers were elected from a group of 10 candidates selected by a committee in April. Each officer puts their collegiate pursuits on hold for one year as they serve over 42, 000 Illinois FFA members throughout the Illinois Association FFA. Officers typically travel more than 20,000 miles visiting FFA chapters around the state, conducting workshops and meetings, representing Illinois FFA in professional settings, and promoting agricultural education. Since 1929, Illinois has elected a State FFA Officer Team.
