Executive Director John HromyakDear Troy,
On behalf of Wisconsin FFA, Happy 2020! We hope your year is off to a great start, whether you're enjoying the snow or avoiding it altogether!
Either way, the second half of the 2019-2020 academic year is already underway for Wisconsin Ag Ed and FFA. Students have been back in their classrooms, continued developing and advancing their Supervised Agricultural Experience projects, and joined their peers in FFA competitions and conferences. In each component of our students’ education, YOU have been there with them as a sponsor, donor, and friend of FFA. Thank you!
Just in the last month, we released our 2019 Annual Report, highlighting award winners and celebrating the 90th anniversary of Wisconsin FFA. We hope you enjoy these features and updates, and look forward to sharing more stories of student achievement throughout the year.
As we eagerly look forward to spring, summer, and all that our growing season entails, it’s important to pause and plan for a successful year. At the Foundation, that means setting goals to meet the needs of our students, our agriculture educators, and our community of supporters. With your investment and engagement, I know we’ll accomplish this together.
Thank you again for joining us in our mission – enjoy the updates below!
John Hromyak 
Executive Director, Wisconsin FFA Foundation
