The head owl himself, Dr. Steve Brown, National FFA Advisor, took the stage to issue a challenge to all FFA members across the country during the opening session of the 2015 National FFA Convention. He asked members if they were readying to change the world of agriculture.
Native to the state of Missouri, Dr. Brown is an avid Kansas City Royals fan. His message to members was focused on courage, confidence and commitment while comparing the many similarities of baseball and agriculture.
“Baseball might be America’s favorite past-time, but I am hear to declare that at the 88th National FFA Convention, FFA is agricultures favorite past-time.”
“I want to tell you I believe in you. I believe in your mind, your dreams and your intelligence. With courage, confidence and commitment you can accomplish anything. You are here at the 88th National FFA Convention, the World Series of Agriculture. I hope that you will amplify your courage, amplify your confidence, amplify your commitment to win the World Series of Agriculture.”
