The Minnesota FFA Foundation is pleased to announce the presentation of the official FFA jacket to members of the Sleepy Eye FFA Chapter.
Colton Gemmill, Cory Schumacher, CristalRose Longoria, Evan Schroepfer, Melissa Kral, Sarah Rossbach, and Tanisha Goblirsch have been selected to receive their own jacket.
Other recipients receiving jackets sponsored by Sleepy Eye FFA Boosters include: Cheyenne Garness, Courtney Engholm, Cassidy Hacker, Lane Trebesch, Allison Helget, and McKenzie Cselovszki.
As Minnesota FFA welcomes thousands of young people into membership, the Minnesota FFA Foundation has announced the recipients of the Blue Jacket Bright Futures program. The program provides sponsored FFA jackets to Minnesota youth who are starting their FFA career. This is the fourth year the Minnesota FFA Foundation has offered the program.
“This program is valuable as it provides students with a jacket for their FFA involvement. Having a jacket provides a real sense of pride,” said Minnesota FFA’s Leadership Development Coordinator, Leah Addington. “FFA plays an important role in the development of leaders who serve their local school and the agricultural community as a whole.”
“The jacket is a symbol of tradition and pride for those who have worn the official FFA jacket. Many past members have sponsored jackets, but it’s not uncommon for individuals and companies to sponsor jackets because they appreciate what the organization does to develop young leaders,” says Val Aarsvold, Minnesota FFA Foundation Executive Director.
