Northern Crops Institute Director Mark Jirik served as a state FFA officer in 1995-1996. Jirik is now an officer with the Minnesota FFA Alumni Association and had a message for the state officers who would hang up their blue jackets after the FFA convention. “This isn’t the end, this is the beginning,” said Jirik. “They’re not ‘has-beens;’ they’re ‘will-be’s.’ They need to bring their talents back to their local communities.”
