Happy October, Idaho FFA!

This month is packed full of different opportunities for all of us to Rise Above. Let’s reflect on last month before we dive into the excitement of October. Chapter visits have been underway for about a month now. Hopefully by this point, most of the districts have seen a state officer or two in their classrooms, and if not, don’t even stress! We are still continuing chapter visits throughout October as well. University of Idaho Ag Days was a blast! Huge thanks to the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences and the CALS Ambassadors for a great weekend. District and chapter socials and BBQs took place last month and provided opportunities for members to get to know each other better. I hope we all were able to take advantage of these opportunities!

Many districts across the state had their district soils and range competitions in September as well. The State Soils and Rangeland Evaluation Career Development Events will be held at Burley High School on October 14. This is a great time for students to show off their skills and mastery in these CDEs!

October 29 through November 1 are the dates for the 87th National FFA Convention! Students competing at convention have been studying months for this, and we wish you luck as you compete. 2012-2013 State President, Tanner Beymer, will be representing Idaho as our National Officer Candidate in hopes of being chosen for a national office. We will try to provide an up to date listing of how our Idaho teams and individuals are doing at convention on our Facebook page. At convention, we will have the ability to listen to keynote speeches and retiring addresses from our current national officer team, attend workshops, concerts, dances, and many other different activities, and of course come together for Idaho night, 6pm on October 30th!

As we “Go All Out” for convention, let’s remember the importance of serving others. The last line of the FFA Motto is, “Living to Serve.” The Idaho State officers are going to be able to participate in the 2014 FFA National Days of Service this year, and we are excited to help and give our time to service. Clancy Johnston, our State Secretary, has the opportunity to serve the entire National FFA Organization by being on the National nominating committee that selects the new 2014-2015 National Officer team!  

Service can also be a lot of little things. Helping someone carry things, opening doors, offering encouragement, and even smiling and saying hello. This October, let’s remember to Rise Above ourselves. There are so many people that are in need of a little service, so let’s be sure to focus on them. Have a great October Idaho FFA!
