Breanne Hanson Baker

2024 Volunteer of the Year


Breanne Hanson-Baker was born and raised in Chelan. She grew up showing animals at the Chelan County Fair since she was in elementary school. Breanne earned her Secondary Education Degree with a focus in English. Still, she always knew she wanted to return to the Chelan area and get back into the world of agriculture education. She resides in Chelan with her husband and two daughters and teaches at Chelan High School.

Breanne has helped the Chelan County Fair livestock office for many years. She is there when weigh-in starts on Wednesday and then spends countless hours in the livestock office entering exhibitors information, preparing class assignments for Fitting and Showing and Market classes, finalizing the livestock sale portion of the fair book, and helping the Livestock coordinator (her dad) stay organized. She is always willing to help with decoration set-up, whether it be her club or a club in need, setting up tagging registration for local chapters, wrangling a lost pig on weigh-in day, or responding to questions from new Advisors.

When she is not in the livestock office, she coordinates FFA decorations, takes pictures for her club and others prepares meals, runs social media pages for FFA and Alumni, and runs errands as the assistant Chelan FFA advisor. She also serves on the Chelan FFA Alumni Board and helps with the Chelan/Manson Youth Fair Fund group.

Breanne has seen all sides of the fair – 4H and FFA exhibitor, advisor, and volunteer and cannot wait to experience it one day as a 4H/FFA parent. She introduced her two daughters early to the fair experience as they both have spent time in the livestock office Pac N Play since they were six months old. Being at the Chelan County Fair has been a multi-generational experience for Breanne's family, and she is excited to see it continue with her daughters.
