FRIENDS OF FFA Because of your steadfast financial support of the Kansas FFA, we have been able to support many facets of the organization which will make a meaningful and lasting effect on FFA members and our agricultural education professionals. The Kansas FFA Foundation provided more than $400,000 in support to various student enrichment programs this past year. This annual report, while it showcases the breadth and depth of the support the Foundation receives from the agriculture industry, businesses and individuals who have helped sponsor awards, scholarships, grants, and leadership development opportunities, it does not adequately capture the lasting positive effect that these investments have on our more than 9,500 members in nearly 200 FFA chapters across our great state. The leadership and technical skills that our members acquire through their participation in FFA will endure long after they have hung up the iconic jacket for the last time. We are proud to be able to showcase the students who were recognized for excellence this past year on these pages. This organization is truly shaping our future leaders. Thank you for your generous gifts to the Kansas FFA Foundation. If you have not yet given, please consider this an invitation to give and show your commitment to the future of Kansas agriculture.

90,000 MEALS I Can. We Will. Kansas FFA members who gathered for the 90th Kansas FFA Convention held May 30–June 1, 2018 in Manhattan, and at Rock Springs 4-H Center in July, fully demonstrated the theme of this year’s event by volunteering to help less fortunate Kansans. In celebration of the 90th anniversary of the convention, members, advisors and alumni packaged 60,000 meals during convention and an additional 30,000 a month later during State Conference for Chapter Leaders (SCCL) for a total of 90,000 meals. More than 400 individuals participated in the two packaging events. Food insecurity is a challenge for many Kansans, young and old alike. To address this concern, members gathered together at the Stanley Stout Center to package a nutritious meal of cheesy rice and vegetables. Once packaged, these meals were then boxed and distributed to various hunger relief agencies including YouthFront, The Flint Hills Bread Basket, Kansas Food Bank and Salina Emergency Aid. FFA Chapters participating in the event also claimed meals to take to food outlets in their local communities. The meal packaging event was made possible by a National FFA ‘Living to Serve Grant’ as the State Day of Service. Other organizations that financially supported the event included Ardent Mills, Kansas Electric Cooperatives with matching CoBank Funds, MKC, and the Reinhardt Family Foundation.

During the 90th Kansas FFA Convention, many notable achievements of student members were recognized. A new state record of awarding 305 state FFA degrees, the highest degree of active membership bestowed by a state FFA association, was set. The state degree sponsorship was made possible by the Kansas Electric Cooperatives and Solomon Corporation. Kansas FFA also celebrated the more than $160,000 in scholarships awarded to members across the state. This included scholarships being presented by the National FFA and the Kansas FFA Foundation for the pursuit of higher education as well as Washington Leadership Conference scholarships.

Career Development Events (CDEs) and Leadership Development Events (LDEs) help students develop the abilities to think critically, communicate clearly, and perform effectively in a competitive job market. At the state level, there are 23 CDEs and LDEs, covering skills in everything from communications to mechanics. Winning teams at the state level competed at the 91st National FFA Convention in Indianapolis in October. 2018 Kansas FFA CDE and LDE winners were:

State scholarship donors include: • Ford Trucks “Built Ford Tough” • Kansas Crop Improvement Association • Orscheln Farm & Home • Stihl Nursery/Landscape • Joyce Casten Memorial • James Ryan Family • Boydston Family • Kansas FFA Alumni • Yoder Meats

CHAPMAN WINS TRIPLE CROWN For the seventh straight year, the Chapman FFA Chapter was awarded the prestigious Triple Crown Award. The Triple Crown award is given to the FFA chapter that performs the best in the National Chapter Award program, which recognizes chapters that actively implement the mission and strategies of the organization in three separate divisions: Building Communities, Growing Leaders and Strengthening Agriculture. Chapman FFA received $1,000 and the Garlow Memorial Trophy, which is sponsored by the Bill Garlow Family in memory of past Kansas FFA officer Bob Garlow.
