Willie Muellter was one of the first individual that I met when I first started teaching ag at the Waterloo High School in the summer of 1985. He was a passionate supporter of the agriculture and FFA program at the Waterloo High School and myself. Willie was there near 100% of the time at FFA and Ag Education events. We sold many fruit cakes and raised alot of money under his leadership over the years. He will be missed for sure! Edna...Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
