Dear Jonas & Jen,
These past few weeks it has been “first day of school" season for our FFA members and agricultural educators across the state. No matter how many first days they’ve had, however, I know the start of the school year brings new energy, new experiences, and yes, new challenges too.
It’s fitting then that National Teach Ag Day (Sept. 21) is at the beginning of the school year, so that we can recognize the efforts and sacrifices of our ag educators – and most importantly, say thank you!
As the academic year kicks off, so too does FFA programming. Our state officers are on the road – presenting workshops, visiting chapters as well as industry leaders – and are teaming with chapter officers and advisors in preparation for a successful year. We wish them well!
Please enjoy the updates in this edition of the Corduroy Connection and watch for our Fall Newsletter, coming to your mailbox soon.
Thank you for your continued support and engagement with Wisconsin FFA!
Executive Director, Wisconsin FFA Foundation
