The FFA tribute this week goes to Grant Norfleet, National FFA secretary.
Grant grew up in northeast Missouri on a cow-calf operation; his dad was a teacher and encouraged him to take an ag class and got involved in FFA.
He likes serving in multiple capacities, and got to go to Washington, D.C., for the national turkey pardoning and take in policy. He’s already prepping for convention, too.
Grant attends the University of Missouri, and would like to pursue a career in ag curriculum development.
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.
