Serving as SD FFA State Officers means more than wearing the FFA official jacket at events. State FFA officers represent the SD FFA in everything they do and are Forever Blue.
Runnings Farm and Fleet of Brookings recognizes the important role these six college students play in representing the future of agriculture in their day to day activities and donated warm, durable coats to the team to wear this winter. The FFA jacket is worn only on official business. The navy Carhartt jackets donated by Runnings are durable and can go with them everywhere – over official dress in cold weather, to college classes, back home doing chores, or wherever needed, and keep them looking like a team.
Sydney Peters of Winner is one of the state officers receiving the jacket. Peters is a freshman at South Dakota State University.
Runnings surprised the officers with the in kind donation through the SD FFA Foundation.
Brookings Runnings manager, Troy Heier says, “As members go out and start their futures, they will hopefully come back to do business with us. As “Future Farmers of America” we can help each other.”
