Executive of 2019- 2020
Elaine Jeffs , President
Elaine is a fourth year B.Sc. (Agr) – Honours student from a dairy and swine farm in Campbellford, ON. She is excited to be serving her fourth year on SFOAC, as the president. Elaine loves learning about crops, attending OAC events and meeting new people! Her advice to you is get involved in every club, event or opportunity that sparks your interest even a little. You never know where those experiences and people you meet will lead you! This year she looks forward to watching others discover what Aggie Spirit is all about!
Logan Emiry, Vice President of Internal Affairs
Kurtis Pilkington, Vice President of External Affairs
Kurtis is excited to be apart of the SFOAC this year as he enters his fourth and final year as a B.Sc. (ARG) honours major. He is from Cambridge, Ontario where he grew up on a hobby farm. Kurtis loves to be apart of all the great clubs and events within the SFOAC. The event he is most excited for is the OAC pig roast held in April. It’s a blast! If you ever need to find him, you can most likely catch him taking a nap in the Aggie lounge before or maybe even during classes.
Josh Weber, Chairperson
Josh Weber is entering his third year of a bachelor of Science in Agriculture. Josh will be representing the OAC as the Chairman. He is from a cash crop farm in Gencoe, Ontario and can’t wait to start helping out with the annual Goodtimes banquet and Pig Roast! Josh may tower over us now, but he wasn’t always tall… he barley made it into the back row of class pictures when he was a kid. For those of us still stuck in the front row – maybe there’s still hope!
Katelyn Damsma, Treasurer
Tuesday Kristiansen, Secretary
Tuesday not to be confused with Monday, Wednesday or Friday. Loves sheep and kiwi (the place and fruit), will talk your ears off for multiple hours and laugh until she’s snorting like a pig. The only time any of exec has seen her quiet is when she’s typing out the minutes. Entering her fourth year of honours agriculture, she may be pint sized but she’s got spirit and is eager for an awesome year.
Havie Carter, Public Relations Representative
Havie is a fourth year student at the university studying Honours Agriculture. She is from Newfoundland, Canada where she grew up on one of the only horticulture farms on the island, and working on a dairy farm. Havie can’t wait to meet the 2023’s and help make this the best year yet for the 2020 Buffalo! Havie just came back from a semester abroad in Wales, if you need someone to spread the word on a great event or activity, she’ll be happy to help!
Emma Richards, B.Comm Representative
Kendra Cornelissen, B.Sc. (AGR) and SRM Representative
Josh Moran, CSA Representative
Josh, from Surmount county in Eastern Ontario is entering his third year of university. Josh is thrilled to be able to help get the Agricultural Policy and Politics club up and running this year!

Kate may not be from a farm, but she sure enjoys huntin’, fishin’ and lovin’ everyday. When not outside, Kate can be found in the Aggie lounge watching Netflix or maybe even playing the ukulele. Kate is ready for a great year working with the SFOAC and 2020 class!
