  1. I was in FFA from 1975 – 1979. My freshman year in HS was a life changing year for me. I got talked into going to our State Convention and ended up being assigned to the Courtesy Corps. As I was setting up for a session the National Officer that was visiting – Leo Anderson from Wyoming – chatted with me. He asked me what my goals were – in life and in FFA. I was explaining to him that I was from a small school – 60 kids, and small chapter – 20 kids. There was no way I could do much in the FFA other than on a local level. He looked at my and said HE was from a small school too – had about 10 members in his chapter. “The sky is the limit” he said! Four years later I was on the convention floor again – as a State Officer. My main message that year as I travelled the state – “To each is given a bag of tools, an hourglass, and a book of rules – and each must build ere their work is done – a stumbling block or a stepping stone!” I saw being from a small town and a small chapter as a stumbling block. It was actually my stepping stone! Much easier to be involved with lots of activities when you are one of a few members!!
