South Central Vice President: Kate Schaefer
Kate Schaefer is the daughter of Tim and Jennifer Schaefer, and has two younger brothers, Tyler and Colton. Her family operates Schaefer Farms, a 200-head Boer meat goat farm, just outside Adel, IA. This is where Kate found her passion for agriculture. While attending Adel DeSoto Minburn High School, Kate was involved in soccer, track, student council, and of course FFA. She served as FFA Chapter President both Junior and Senior years and was the top fundraiser all four years of high school. Her SAE project is based on Goat Production, which ties to the activities Kate participates in and leads with the Junior Iowa Meat Goat Association. She currently serves as JIMGA President and can commonly be found mentoring youth at goat shows and other events. Kate plans to major in Agricultural Communications, which suits her fun personality and keen ability to teach, sell and network. She is detail oriented and constantly making connections and working with others. Kate is eager to continue interacting with FFA members and helping them find their best pathway. Let the many adventures across Iowa and the South Central District begin!
