April 8, 2023

The FFA tribute this week goes to Colton Roy, Missouri state FFA president. He joined FFA because cousins had joined the organization. He chose to run for a state leadership position at the prompt of his advisor and because he enjoyed the leadership aspect. He’s excited for the state convention, and to watch the new team take on roles and succeed in the coming year.

Colton thinks it’s important to join the organization because there’s something in FFA for everyone, and there’s no one typical member.

After graduation, Colton would like to go to law school and practice ag law with a focus on farm succession.

The weekly FFA Chapter Tribute is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the good work of your local chapter. Tell us about what you're doing, give us some history from your group and tell our viewers of the work you do in the community. FFA chapters across the country deserve recognition for the work they do, make sure we include yours.

To have your chapter considered for this weekly feature, send along information about your group by e-mail to Max Armstrong at [email protected]. They'll get your group on the list of those that will be covered in the future. It's a chance to share your story beyond the local community. Drop Orion or Max a "line" soon.
