I learned a lot from my years in FFA. I really did enjoy it, and I had the opportunity to meet some great people. I was an officer for our high school chapter. My favorite office was being the Reporter because I got to take all the pictures. I went on some great trips through FFA, too. One of my trips allowed me to spent a week in Washington D.C. in 90 degree heat, in official dress. YIKES! It was a great leadership conference and I will certainly never forgot that experience.
My brother was also in FFA as were most of my younger cousins. I really wanted to post a picture of my FFA years, but we haven't found any digital copies and I haven't gone through all of my pictures to find on to scan. Just by chance though, I googled myself and found an article from school board minutes dated November 12, 1997. The article mentions my brother (Matt) for soil judging and me for horticulture judging. To me, that seems almost as good as a picture. :)
I sure hope Mr.Warren is able to enjoy retirement! He sure is a loved man. There were many people at his party today, and I am sure I only saw a small portion of them.
