and agricultural education serve a student well throughout life; even if they do not choose an Agriculture related career.
De has a FFA Alumni Association for former FFA members and/or residents who would like to support DE FFA Vocational Agriculture students. The FFA relies on alumni members for student recruiting, scholarship, money, aiding in conferences, state and national FFA conventions and other personal development programs. Our next meeting will be held on Monday, May 2, 2011 at Delaware State University Washington Extension Center from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm.
On March 30 and 31, 2011, the Delaware Association will hold its state convention at the University of Delaware’s Clayton Hall in Newark. At the convention, we will announce the 2011- 2012 Delaware State Officers and say goodbye to the 2010-2011 State Officer Team. Current Officers are: Amber Bullock, President; Lauren Voss, Vice President; Lauren Nickerson, Secretary, Maryann Artebridge, Treasurer; Michael Cannon, Reporter; Dr. Karen Hutchinson, State Advisor; and Stacey Hofmann, State Executive Secretary.
Service is an important part of the FFA. Through serving others, FFA members learn the importance of hard work, the rewards of a job well done, and the satisfaction of helping others. Through agricultural education and FFA, young people have truly “Infinite Potential.”
