October is here, and we are counting down the days until we head to the 89th annual CFFA National Convention.
Because of you, the Southern Arkansas University Collegiate FFA Team will be able to travel to Indianapolis! We are excited to receive our American Degrees, support our classmate, Taylor McNeel, as she leads the convention as the National FFA President, and recruit high school students to join our strong team of agriculture leaders here at SAU.
Thank you for making this experience possible for us.
Yesterday, SAU recruiters came to teach us how to properly and professionally recruit future Muleriders. We will have a booth at the National Convention and will be actively sharing the great things happening here. This is a wonderful opportunity to highlight our University and our program.
Five students will be traveling with Dr. Jeff Miller, chair of the Department of Agriculture, and will leave on Tuesday, October 18th. The remaining 11 students will leave from the Arkansas State Fair Hog Show with Mr. John Gentry and Mrs. Copie Moore on Thursday, October 20th. We will head back to Arkansas at the conclusion of the American Degree Ceremony on Saturday, October 22.
We are excited to send you updates of what your generosity has allowed for our team. Again, thank you for supporting the Southern Arkansas University Collegiate FFA Team.
Wade Andrews/CFFA President
