Welcome to the Montana State FFA website!
Hello Montana FFA!
As the end of the year gets closer, the state officer team would like to give an update on our travels and upcoming events to look forward to!
To begin, we were sorry to say goodbye to Mr. Jimmerson, but thrilled to say hello to Mr. Rose as our new state advisor in January! The state officer team is very excited to get the chance to work with Mr. Rose, (former Shields Valley FFA Advisor) and we look forward to finishing out our year with him.
After the holidays ended, we kicked off January with Torgerson’s Gold Conference, where participants from all over the state had the opportunity to practice interviewing and learned more about the business world to prepare them for future agriculture leadership positions. We also had KMON in Great Falls, in addition to many local and district contests held throughout the state. The state officer team also had the opportunity on February 2nd to meet with the Lieutenant Governor, Angela McLean, and discuss how we can prepare students for a future in the work field. We also are underway preparing for state convention! It’s a very exciting and busy time in the association office.
Coming in the next month we have JAAM and Conrad Crops and Mechanics March 6th-7th, State Food and Veterinary Science in Missoula March 13th-14th, and the Montana FFA State Convention in Billings, March 25th-29th. There are also other local and district contests still coming up in addition to the state Officer team wrapping up chapter visits across the state.
As we begin the final leg of our journey this year and prepare for Montana FFA’s 85th State Convention, and reflect on the wonderful memories made and experiences had, let us look forward with a brightness of hope. We can learn from our past, and it is also important to plan for the future, don’t rush through the now. A wise old turtle once said “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That's why it is called the present.” Montana FFA, we look forward to holding on to these past few weeks with you and we will see you at your convention.
