As some area Future Farmers of America (FFA) members get ready to attend the upcoming National FFA Convention & Expo, one FFA alumnus shares his unique experience from over 30 years ago. Rich Olson of the Southern Door FFA Alumni Club recalls his highlight at the 1987 convention held in Kansas City, Missouri.
Olson says he wasn’t nervous during the performance but was trembling afterward. He says he also remembers meeting John Schneider of Dukes of Hazzard fame and Olympian Bruce Jenner at the time. This year’s National FFA Convention is set from October 24th through the 27th in Indianapolis, Indiana.
