Busdieker notes that the transition to his successor is already underway, and chapters shouldn’t experience a significant change.
Missouri FFA Adviser Leon Busdieker was named the 2020 Outstanding State Supervisor by the National Association of Supervisors in Agricultural Education. His retirement takes effect July 1st.
