LANSING, Mich.—The Michigan FFA Association today recognized state Sen. Mike Green for his strong support of the agricultural industry and the state’s future leaders.
“As chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture and Rural Development and as someone who supports the industry and its community, I am deeply honored to have been recognized by such an esteemed organization as the FFA,” said Green, R-Mayville. “I am proud to serve such a quality group of students that participate in FFA and am amazed at the leadership skills they develop.”
The FFA recognized Green at a legislative reception in the state Capitol rotunda, where more than 200 FFA delegates gathered. The association is holding its 84th State FFA Convention this week.
A diverse organization operating in rural, urban, and suburban schools, the Michigan FFA consists of more than 5,300 members from 103 active chapters. Like the agricultural industry in Michigan, membership in the state FFA continues to grow.
