FFA Jackets Awarded to Members by South Dakota FFA Foundation

To its owner, the FFA jacket is a physical reminder of the personal accomplishments achieved through the organization - a symbol of commitment and dedication for all who wear the corduroy. This fall a record breaking 343 South Dakota FFA members from 62 chapters, will receive their own FFA jackets through the SD FFA Foundation Blue Jackets Bright Futures FFA Jacket Program - carrying forward that long-standing tradition of pride, dignity and honor. Jackets were sponsored by various individuals through the SD FFA Foundation Program, welcoming new members into the fabric of FFA.

 

Ten students from Sturgis Brown High School received their jackets:  Bailey Urbaniak, sponsored by Farm Credit Services of America; Allie Harper, sponsored by Farm Credit Services of America; Joel Wilen, sponsored by De & Mike Johnson; Landon Kuenzel, sponsored by Farm Credit Services of America; Gabrielle Bertalot, sponsored by Farm Credit Services of America; Jordan Vaughn, sponsored by Chris & Penny; Jarody Udager, sponsored by Producers Hybrids, Inc.; John Peterson, sponsored by DuPont Pioneer; Haley Ferguson, sponsored by Tim Brown; and Emily Pi, sponsored by SDSU AGR & Sigma Alpha.

 

FFA members filled out the Blue Jackets Bright Futures FFA Jacket Program application, answering four short essay questions about their FFA experience and goals, competing to earn their own FFA jacket instead of purchasing one.
