Southwest FFA members deserve one recognition

Wednesday, October 12, 2005

To Whom It May Concern:

On Saturday night, Oct. 1 we had the privilege of attending the Southwest FFA Fall Festival as they were celebrating "Thirty Years of Excellence." The benefits of that night will go to help hurricane victims in the south, and we commend these young people of Southwest for doing such a great job of putting it all together.

We have been involved with the Southwest FFA organization since 1982, and being the parents of two former FFA chapter presidents, we well know of the long hours and hard work that goes into an event such as this.

Southwest FFA Chapter President Drew Nickols spent endless hours searching for and and contacting former presidents and advisors of the past 30 years and worked tirelessly gathering donations for those who desperately need it. We sincerely appreciate Drew for his leadership and all the FFA members who worked so diligently for such a worthy cause.

Yours Truly,

Margaret and Dale Rose
