This year’s Blue Jackets. Bright Futures. Program received over 800 applications from FFA members across the state.
Thanks to the generous support of our donors, we were able to award 296 deserving FFA members with a new FFA jacket and tie or scarf.
Here is a glimpse of what some FFA members wrote on their applications:
“It will be an honor to wear the FFA jacket and represent the largest youth organization in the world. The FFA jacket is a symbol of premier leadership, personal growth and career success.”
“When I see FFA members wearing the jacket it makes me proud to see them carry out a legacy for the FFA and themselves, and I would be honored to be part of that and will wear my jacket with dignity.”
“When I put the FFA jacket on I will be compelled to do my best for my chapter.”
“My future in FFA is going to be productive. I plan on being an active member in our chapter. I would like to obtain my Greenhand degree then keep working my way up to my Chapter degree, State degree and then finally my American degree.”
“FFA has always been a dream for me. My father was a member of the same FFA chapter and shared his experiences with me.”
After reading just a few quotes you can tell how many passionate FFA members Nebraska has.
Thank you to all our jacket donors, and congratulations to all 296 jacket recipients!
