The 86th National FFA Convention – held last week in Louisville, Ky., – featured all the excitement, pageantry and inspiration this annual event is known for, as well as achieved record-setting attendance of 62,998 students, teachers and guests.
If you were at convention – or perhaps a previous one – share a favorite memory with us.
Case IH – a supporter of FFA for more than 65 years – sponsored speed painter Dan Dunn who performed live during the three opening sessions. Dunn’s art celebrated the 80th anniversary of the adoption of the official FFA jacket. Proceeds from the sale of the paintings are going toward an endowment for annual FFA scholarships.
We were thrilled to have thousands of FFA members stop by the Case IH booth in the FFA Expo to see the paintings close up. Many students inquired about internship and career opportunities through our Case IH internship program.
On Saturday morning, Freedom Hall was overflowing as approximately 3,500 students received the American FFA Degree. Case IH is proud to be a sponsor of this high honor.
Case IH congratulates the many students who were recognized and looks forward to the 87th National FFA Convention & Expo – Oct. 29-Nov. 1, 2014, in Louisville.
