FFA Honors CVM for Convention Support

FFA Honors CVM for Convention SupportThe National FFA Organization honored the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine for its outstanding support at a five-year exhibitor at the FFA National Agricultural Career Show, held Oct. 24-26 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

The career show is an integral part of the National FFA Convention and highlights career opportunities for agricultural students. Representatives of agribusiness, universities and industry associations met with students throughout the three-day event, which represented the group’s 42nd annual show. Representing the MU CVM were Kathy Seay, admission advisor for the college, and Morgan See, administrative assistant for student and alumni affairs. They were joined by more than 415 other exhibitors who showcased the diversity of agriculture and its related fields and presented information in a trade-show setting.

There were more than 54,000 members of FFA, advisors and guests in attendance at the convention and career show. The 2007 theme, “Blue Jackets; Bright Future,” celebrated students’ promise, spirit and success. The efforts members devote to personal, career and civic achievement engenders hope in local communities and inspires confidence in a new generation and future of agriculture.

FFA is a national youth organization of 500,823 student members preparing for leadership and careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture. There are 7,358 local chapters in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. FFA strives to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
