The Farm Forum donates coats to State FFA Officers

Serving as South Dakota FFA state officers means more than wearing the FFA official jacket at events. State FFA officers represent the South Dakota FFA in everything they do and are Forever Blue. The Farm Forum recognizes the important role these six college students play in representing the future of agriculture in their day to day activities and donated warm, durable coats to the team to wear this winter. The FFA jacket is worn only on official business. The navy Carhartt jackets donated by The Farm Forum are durable and can go with them everywhere—over official dress in cold weather, to college classes, back home doing chores, or wherever needed, and keep them looking like a team.

The Farm Forum provided the officers with the jackets through the South Dakota FFA Foundation. Marie Robbins, state FFA secretary says, “It is the support of business such as The Farm Forum that help make our year of service as impactful as it can be. We also appreciate all the coverage they provide of our FFA activities and members. Thank you to The Farm Forum for the considerate and useful gift.”

Individuals and businesses wanting to invest in South Dakota youth in agriculture through financial or in kind donations should contact Gerri Ann Eide, South Dakota FFA Foundation executive director at 605-765-4865 or [email protected]. The SD FFA Foundation is proud to support Agricultural Education and the FFA’s mission to make a difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
