Friday marked a big first for Elgin, and Marie Meis couldn't hide her excitement.
Meis becomes the school's first Nebraska State FFA Officer finalist, making history for Antelope County's strongest FFA program. And then made more history by being named a state officer. She will serve as a vice president.
As part of the selection process, Meis submitted an application and went through a rigorous, multi-segmented formal interview process. The 2018-19 Nebraska State FFA Officers were announced on Friday afternoon during the 90th annual Nebraska State FFA Convention at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln.
Meis was one of 12 finalists.
Publishers of the Elgin Review were recognized with honorary state degrees on Friday afternoon during the 90th annual Nebraska State FFA Convention at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln.

Ten Elgin students received the prestigious state degree on Friday, concluding the 90th annual Nebraska State FFA Convention at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln.
Receiving state degrees were Heather Bauer, Taralyn Baum, Lydia Behnk, Grace Henn, Calli Krebs, Marie Meis, William Hayes Miller, Elizabeth Mlnarik, Nickol Payne and Cole Preister. Absent from the photo is Marie Meis.

Smiles were abundant at the KC Hall in Elgin on Saturday morning as the annual Easter Egg Hunt was underway.
Rainy weather caused the event to be moved from its planned location at the park, but fun was still to be had as kids ages 2-9 participated in finding the eggs hidden throughout the hall.
Winners of the prizes were Hunter Dozler (22 months), Cayson Bottorf (2), Peyton Swartz (5), Mikaiah Hoefer (5) and Kami Carstens (8).
Check out the gallery below to see the kids in action!
