Agricultural Legislative day is held each March in order for Ag organizations to meet with state senators and representatives to discuss the importance of their support for the Ag community.
This year FFA chapters from all over the state delivered commodity baskets and lunches to the members of legislature on March 9th.
In addition Rep. David Reis also took time out from his schedule to meet with the chapter and discuss what FFA and agricultural education means in their lives. Kendra Courson ’11 was glad to be part of the process, “Probably more than 500 students were in attendance. It was a sea and blue and gold.
Plus, that only represents a small percentage of FFA membership in Illinois. It was pretty cool to be part of something so big. ”
