Three FFA students, Windsor High School agriculture education teacher Nathan Clark and Don Thorn, executive director of the Colorado FFA Foundation, stopped by Tri-State’s headquarters to thank board members for their long-standing participation and financial support of the FFA organization.
The board has a history of contributing to the state wide FFA foundations in Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska and New Mexico. Those funds support FFA students who attend the annual Washington Leadership Conference in our nation’s capital. The event gives them an opportunity to learn how the federal government operates, tour the city, and meet their states’ elected officials. “We’re looking forward to an increased, mutually beneficial partnership in the future with Tri-State, in ways like trying to promote Tri-State as a potential employer to our students,” said Thorn.
While at Tri-State, the group met with Board Chairman Rick Gordon, visited with other board members and were treated to a tour of the operations center. They also promoted the Colorado FFA Foundation’s Muscle Car Give-a-Way, a raffle contest to win a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro. All proceeds benefit FFA; tickets may be purchased online for $5 each at www.coloradoffafoundation.org.
