Last year’s virtual Missouri FFA Convention meant that retiring officers could only gather, four at a time, to pre-record their reflection speeches. With this year’s convention taking place in person, FFA state adviser Leon Busdieker says those officers will have another opportunity to deliver their remarks.
Busdieker says another former state officer will pay a visit to the convention, the current Central Region Vice President of the National FFA Organization, Paxton Dahmer.
Several guest speakers are also lined up for the 93rd Missouri FFA Convention. This Friday, attendees will hear from Missouri State Fair director Mark Wolfe, Missouri Director of Agriculture Chris Chinn, and National FFA Association adviser Doctor James Woodard.
