Kansas FFA Foundation Meetings
Kansas FFA Launches Community Engagement Meetings Across the State
The Kansas FFA Foundation is launching community engagement sessions to the North Central region. Meetings will be held during April, with other areas of Kansas to follow. Representatives from the Kansas FFA Foundation, FFA members, FFA officers and local supporters will share important information. The Our Youth. Our Future. Our Kansas FFA presentation will discuss exciting developments for the future of agriculture education throughout Kansas.
“Through a statewide feasibility study, we gained a greater sense that individuals who believe in agriculture education and FFA wanted the opportunity to hear more about the program,” said Beth Gaines, executive director of the Kansas FFA Foundation. “We are taking this opportunity to travel the state to share some of the exciting developments and some of the real challenges that are ahead as we strategically prepare for our future.”
Meeting topics will include some historical information, the focus of the future, the impact on Kansas agriculture, FFA funding and an opportunity to ask questions. The presentation will last about an hour.
