I have seen nearly every aspect of FFA and always been impressed. As a student member it was invaluable for me to develop leadership skills and technical knowledge and expertise in the agricultural industry. In leadership roles I met so many people, developed my public speaking skills, and really grew as a person. After college I was an ag teacher and FFA advisor and saw first hand how students are impacted by the programs and did my part to pay it forward. Now as a national staff person I continue to be inspired everyday by the great work that staff, advisors, volunteers are doing to ensure that students today have the same great experience and great opportunities as were available 5, 10, 15, and even 85 years ago.

Throughout high school and college I was an active member of the FFA. I was headed down a bad road until I was turned around and joined the FFA. Agricultural education gave me more than just skills and ethics, it saved me. This organization helped me finish my high school education and pushed me to pursue a college degree. Now with a degree in Agricultural Science and a great career I believe FFA was the main contribution to where I am now.

FFA and agricultural education provided me personal development and leadership training that has benefited me my entire career. FFA changes lives and gives young people an avenue to develop and pursue a career in agriculture. It is an honor to continue being a part of this great organization.

I continue to be amazed by the ways in which FFA prepares young people for their futures. Their programs encourage students to discover their interests and talents, helps them develop skills and around those skills and talents, and then teaches them how to use those skills to serve others. Many people think the organization only trains kids to become farmers, but it's so, so much more than that.
