Billie Lentz of Rolla, North Dakota and Maddie Smith of Minnesota’s Fillmore Central FFA Chapter have advanced to the final round for the national FFA officer selection process. In a typical year, the National FFA officer team spends about 300 days on the road, meeting with FFA members, alumni and industry stakeholders. “Most of that is still going to be carried out this upcoming year, but what it looks like will be determined by what is happening in the news and our world,” said Smith. “The mission still remains, nonetheless, to really help make a positive difference in the lives of students.” The Red River Farm Network coverage of the National FFA Convention is sponsored by CHS, AgCountry Farm Credit Services, AMPI and its Dinner Bill Creamery, the South Dakota Farmers Union, Farm Credit Services of Mandan and the Minnesota Agricultural Education Leadership Council.
