South Central Vice President: Trenton Eilander
Trenton Eilander was born and raised in Newton and is the fifth generation of Eilanders in south central Iowa. He has a younger sister, Kylie, who is a sophomore in high school, and a younger brother, Isaiah, who is deceased. Trent is forever blessed as a Cardinal, having graduated with the NHS Class of 2020. He is a recipient of the Mark Pearson Scholarship and is on the Dean’s List at Des Moines Area Community College in the Agricultural Business program. Trent is a member of the Iowa Corn Growers Association, Newton Church of the Way, the Jasper County Farm Bureau, Key Co-operative, and Newton Lodge 59 and of course FFA. His jobs currently include working on farms, lawn care for residential and rural customers, maintenance at Westwood Golf Course, caring for local cemeteries, working at HyVee, and enjoying his internship at Key Co-op in Newton. Trent can be found happiest scooping the loop in his 1996 Ford Centurion diesel, bidding at auctions, attending church, tractor rides, and mowing lawns. His top goals include leaving the Iowa FFA better than he found it, pursuing the American FFA degree, and eventually owning his own farming operation.
