National FFA Advisor Dr. Steve Brown addressed FFA members at the 89th National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, IN during the opening general session. He encouraged not only the thousands in attendance but all 649,355 FFA members from across the country to get the most out of their FFA experience.
“FFA is not a spectator sport. The education, the experience, the understanding, and the strength of your participation will determine your outcome,” he said.
He challenged members to be engaged. “We can’t be scared. We must be bold and we must be brave. We can’t be unprepared or lack the confidence it takes to win the race.”

Dr. Brown has been a family friend my entire life and I was honored to sit down with him to dive deeper into his message and goals going forward. “Just keep growing. We talk about growing leaders, building communities and strengthening agriculture. Growth is a great goal for us.”
