ADRIAN – After being accepted to her self-described “dream college,” Adrian senior Sundee Speelmon is taking a detour.

Speelmon is delaying college for a year after being elected state reporter at the recent Oregon State FFA convention. 

Rather than attending BYU-Hawaii next fall, Speelmon will be touring the state, making presentations at schools, touring agricultural facilities and representing Oregon agricultural youth. 

The job starts immediately with training. 

Speelmon will be the first state office holder from Adrian in 20 years. 

The journey to spending a year as a state officer started in seventh grade for Speelmon. It almost ended at the state convention.
