2015-16 State Officer Team, Farewell
Wisconsin FFA Partners, thank you so much for your generous support throughout this year! With your help we have been able to allow members to find their own path within the FFA through our theme for the year of “Be…” It has been incredible seeing the way members can take everything they do and make it their own.
Whether through their Supervised Agricultural Experiences, Career Development Events, leadership workshops, community service projects and more, Wisconsin FFA members are excelling in everything they take on.
This year the state officer team set a goal to reach more than 20,000 members. As the year has progressed, I have witnessed more and more members becoming involved in the many different events and activities our team has held. Seeing hundreds of FFA members in their blue jackets at leadership workshops has shown me that, while I still really hope that we can surpass our goal, being a part of the students' involved today means much more. The ability to offer a number of diverse opportunities has allowed us to reach members from a variety of backgrounds, communities and interests.
All of this influence would be impossible without your help. Our partners make it possible to offer these opportunities to Wisconsin FFA members. When we say there is something for everyone in FFA, we mean it, and it’s all because of you. One FFA member told me: “Because of FFA, I know the importance of interacting with others, and respecting others opinions and values, while staying true to myself and the values that I hold.”
Thank you for helping to teach us to interact with and respect the people around us. Thank you for helping to make Wisconsin FFA one of the greatest organizations for students to be involved in!
