Testimonial: "FFA was such a big part of my high school career. From conferences to competitions, I developed strong leadership and communication skills. Because I gained so much from FFA, I knew I wanted to give back to the organization. I decided to run for state FFA office and was elected to the 2005-2006 state FFA officer team.
"The biggest thing I gained as a state officer was learning that building relationships with other people is the number one key to success. I networked with so many key influencers in Wisconsin agriculture during my year of service. That opportunity really helped when it came time to apply for internships in college.
"Furthermore, the relationships your build with your teammates are irreplaceable. We are all still close friends and will continue to be for a very long time!"
