On Thursday August 22, FFA members Tobyn Bender and Michael Hershberger traveled to Kalona to award Phil Ropp and Farmers Supply Inc. with the Honorary Chapter Farmer Award. The Honorary Chapter Farmer Award is given annually to parents, businesses, or FFA advisors that contribute time, money, supplies or other needs to the local FFA chapter.
Farmers Supply Sales Inc. received this award because of their support of our FFA chapter, including contributions like the donation of tractors for the annual IMS Tractor Driving Contest held in the fall.
Michael Hershberger, FFA president commented, “We would like to thank Mr. Ropp and the employees from Farmers Supply for their generosity to our chapter. We look forward to working with them in the future.”
