Yesterday, February 25, 2012, concluded the annual National FFA Week Celebration. If you have read this blog before, you know what FFA is. Formerly called Future Farmers of America, FFA is a youth organization preparing young adults for careers, leadership and life in agriculture or any industry segment a person may choose.
I was asked, as the Executive Director of the Butte County Farm Bureau, to speak during National FFA Week about Farm Bureau and ag careers to the CORE Charter FFA Chapter in Chico last Thursday following their Chapter meeting. I was honored!
CORE Charter FFA Chapter is a new program here in Chico and they are off and running! It was surreal to sit through their chapter meeting - opening and closing ceremonies, the FFA Motto - because I quickly realized I remembered all of the words the students were speaking. Amazing the things we never forget. It was fun and I enjoyed the opportunity probably more than the kids did but that's okay. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Thanks for reading. ~mrs.c
