First, Thank You to all of you who took students to the 87th National FFA Convention last week. Seeing the National Convention and all that it entails is a tremendous experience for young people, and I appreciate you giving them that opportunity. By now you have probably heard that Georgia had a very successful trip to Louisville, with 15 national winners and the new National FFA President. What you may not have heard was that Mr. Chip Bridges was also named the Outstanding State Supervisor in the nation by the National Association of Supervisors of Agricultural Education (NASAE). Attached is a press release highlighting Georgia’s success at the Convention. Please feel free to use this information.


Congratulations to all who competed, all who won and to those honored for their service. It was a great showing for Georgia. For more results and information about the National Convention, you can to www.georgiaffa.org and click on the National Convention link or visit www.ffa.org.
