National FFA Organization
November 15, 2012

The National FFA Organization changes lives and sets careers in motion. I was a FFA member during my high school career. In my day FFA stood for the Future Farmers of America. I was proud to call myself a Future Farmer and to have the honor and privilege of wearing that blue and gold jacket! The leadership skills learned through my vocational agriculture classes and honed and sharpened by participating in FFA contests (today called Career Development Events) gave me the self confidence and motivation needed for me to obtain a Bachelor of Science and a Master's of Education in Agriculture Education. Today that path has led to me being the County Extension Director for Cooperative Extension in the county that I was born and raised in. The last line of the FFA Creed was my closing slide in my presentation when I applied for the County Director's position that answered the question of why I wanted the position. That quote is "...and that I can exert an influence in my home and community which will stand solid for my part in that inspiring task."
