The Rushville FFA Chapter gained a new Ag teacher in the fall of 2013. Miss Quinn Wicker has grown up in Rush County and is the daughter of Michael and Carolyn Wicker. She had an early start in Agriculture because she was raised on a cattle farm located near Milroy.
In high school she decided to join the Rushville FFA Chapter because both her dad and older brother Jaret were former members, and they encouraged her to join. Miss Wicker was also a very active member and competed at the National level for Crops Judging when she was only a sophomore. She also participated in various leadership camps. Her decision to become an Ag teacher was an easy choice because she enjoys talking to people and telling them interesting facts about agriculture.
“Also, I really enjoyed FFA in high school, and wanted to give back to an organization that did so much for me,” Miss Wicker stated.
From the beginning of the year to now, Miss Wicker has helped with different Career Development Event’s including: Skill-A-Thon, Meats Judging, Livestock Judging and Leadership contests. In her spare time she loves to read, spend time with her family, go shopping and arrange flowers. She believes the move back to Rushville has helped her grow as a person and was a great move for her career.
Miss Wicker added, “Rushville has a great reputation across the state for both its Ag Program and FFA Chapter.”
When asked about her future plans she wants to continue her career here at Rushville.
