The career expo is always a highlight at the National FFA Convention. With the virtual format, CHS Communications Specialist Tera Stoddard is still reaching out to members of the blue and gold. “We’re not getting that face-to-face connection which is a bummer because we always love seeing them and it fills our cup.” With the virtual format, CHS is offering classroom grants to ag teachers. The CHS Foundation is also offering scholarship programs for students studying agriculture at 25 universities. Stoddard says there is also support for FFA’ers considering a technical education. “We still need young people that are willing to live in the rural communities that they grew up in and it is possible in agriculture to have a job that you’re passionate about while still living in your hometown.”
