STATE FFA PRESIDENT LOOKS BACK ON PAST YEAR

Next week’s Missouri FFA Convention will mark the conclusion of a year of service for the organization’s current officer team, as they make way for next year’s team.  State president Abby Bertz says it’s a bittersweet feeling for her to move on.

Bertz says she’ll remember the friendships she’s developed with several of Missouri FFA’s 26,000 members.  She adds that it’s one of the many lessons she’s learned as president.

The new officers will be named Thursday during the business session of the 90th Missouri FFA Convention in Columbia.
