    2015 FFA Acquaintance Day Program 


    The Annual FFA Acquaintance Day Program was full of fellowship and fun enjoyed by the 115 attendees and the 35 volunteers on Tuesday, January 27th at Wabash Valley College.  The event was sponsored by the Southeastern Farm Bureaus with an overall goal of providing FFA students with information and opportunities in agriculture as they prepare to graduate high school and decide upon an education and career path. 


    Covering subjects such as ‘Finances for High School and Beyond’ by Farm Credit Illinois, and speakers from Wabash Valley Service Company and McLean Implement spoke about ‘How to get a job in Ag’ and what kinds of things employers look for in potential employees.   Attendees also discussed actively advocating for agriculture after graduation through the Illinois Farm Bureau Young Leaders Program, and through potential Ag Careers.  The opening session was done by Wabash Valley College and the closing session speaker was Dave Land, a retired business owner and philanthropist who spoke about ’18 things I wish I would have known when I was 18’.  

     Olney FFA members represent East Richland High School at the 2015 FFA Acquaintance Day Program.
