Michigan FFA Alumni paying it forward


The Michigan FFA Alumni Association has raised nearly $200,000 in the last three years from an annual raffle.

Executive director Burt Henry tells Brownfield the proceeds are supporting youth leadership development.

“We’re building future leaders not only for our industry but for our nation,” he says.

He says nearly 9,000 tickets were sold this year with close to $40,000 staying at the chapter level.

Henry says local support for agricultural educators helps programs thrive.
