This week’s Missouri FFA Convention will be the first for Keith Dietzschold as state adviser, and he along with thousands of FFA members will take time Thursday to show appreciation for his predecessor. Dietzschold says that Leon Busdieker will be one of two honorees of this year’s Distinguished Service Citation.
Busdieker’s career in education spanned 43 years, including the last ten as state FFA adviser at the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
Convention also marks the chance to honor FFA members who have earned their state degree.
Qualifying members will receive their State Degree during the fifth and final general session of the Missouri FFA Convention on Friday evening.
