“I feel like throughout the year we progressively got better and became more aggressive and have gotten better than we were last year,” said Hicks.

Saying Hicks is heavily involved in FFA at Marietta would be an understatement. She has shown hogs for the last seven years and was the 2018 Yorkshire Breed Champion at the Love County junior livestock show.

Hicks also serves as the Chapter President. Some of her responsibilities include promoting activities within the chapter and helping keep things organized. The chapter has won the State Championship the last two years in ag mechanics, Hicks had two projects that placed third and fourth.

This past Summer Hicks attended the National FFA Washington Leadership Conference and is also the top salesperson for the chapter. Hicks has learned a lot from being involved in FFA.

“It’s really taught me how to work well with others,” said Hicks, “and just learning to appreciate other opinions, also that communication is a major factor in everything.”

Outside of FFA Hicks is also a standout student with a 3.96 GPA and is third in her class. She’ll also finish high school with 15 college credits. She is involved in the Marietta Church of Christ youth group and volunteers for events in the community such as the Christmas parade and Easter egg hunt. After high school she plans to attend Rose State for Dental Hygiene.
