Utah FFA Association,
I hope that your first few weeks of school have been amazing and that you are fully enjoying a new year full of great opportunities to learn and ignite your potential as FFA members. You are part of the greatest organization available to high school students and I encourage you to take full advantage of that opportunity. This new year provides new experiences and opportunities which will aid in developing your potential for premier leadership, career success and (I know it’s out of order) overall PERSONAL GROWTH.
You all can become better this year, every single one of you. It may take work, commitment, and sacrifice but it will be worth it. Becoming better this year begins with a decision… to become better. Say it to yourself, “I will become better!” Sweet, the mental goal is created! Now act on that!
I strongly encourage you to make the most of this year and keep up on your school work as well as your FFA obligations and commitments. Try something new…. compete in a new contest, meet that friend that you’ve yet to meet, and do something as you have never done before. It will be worth it. You only cross this path once, pick up as much as you can now because once it’s over you can’t come back.
We as state officers can see your potential and our feet tingle with excitement to see what it will become! (Strange analogy, but it works ha-ha) We look forward to each coming day and the opportunity to associate with so many of you, let us know what is going on. WE WANT TO BE INVOLVED! Once again, take each opportunity that you have to become better and ignite your potential. We look forward to seeing you this year at chapter, state, and national activities. Keep up the good work!
Until next time, work hard, stay committed, shatter expectations, ignite your potential, try something new, bleed blue and gold…. and, oh yeah, LOVE THE BIRDS- well mostly pigeons, ha-ha.
Love you all, in a not awkward way! Later,
Hunter Siggard, Utah FFA State Treasurer
