Dan and Barb Rasmussen together with Syngenta participated in the FFA Rising Sun program through the National FFA Foundation for an opportunity to recognize and support the David City FFA Chapter.
Syngenta challenged its Seed Advisors to contribute $1,000 to the National FFA Foundation. In recognition of each dealer’s contribution a local FFA chapter, selected by the Syngenta Seed Dealer, received a $300 check for chapter use.
“Syngenta is proud to partner with many of our dealers in supporting the Rising Sun program,” said Scott Desotel, Syngenta’s Iowa district manager, “This is an outstanding opportunity to help ensure the future of agriculture across the U.S. while positively impacting local chapters and relationships with our leaders of tomorrow.”
“FFA prepares young people to lead, grow and achieve future success in more than 300 diverse careers through agricultural education,” said National FFA Foundation President Molly Ball.
The National FFA Foundation is the fundraising arm of the National FFA Organization, which provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 629,367 student members in grades seven through 12 who belong to one of 7,757 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
