CONVENTION TIP of the DAY for Friday, May 17, 2019 - WELCOME - Jordan Stowe, 2018 - 2019 National FFA Southern Region Vice President

We are excited to announce that Jordan Stowe, the 2018 - 2019 National FFA Southern Region Vice President, will be joining our association for the length of the 91st Annual Illinois FFA State Convention. Make sure you are there during the 2nd General Session when Jordan presents her keynote address. 

When Jordan Stowe began taking a general agriscience class her sophomore year, she didn’t know how much it would influence here. “My best friend inspired me to become involved in FFA, and I began to compete in events such as extemporaneous speaking and nursery landscape,” Stowe says. “I served as a chapter officer and then was elected as a state officer my senior year of high school.” While attending Enterprise High School, her supervised agricultural experience was training and socializing service dogs through Service Dogs of Alabama. Stowe was elected to the 2018-19 National FFA Officer team as southern region vice president at the 91 st National FFA Convention & Expo. Majoring in agriscience education, Stowe is a junior at Auburn University and served as the 2015-16 Alabama State Vice President. "This year, I hope to meet as many members as possible and teach everyone I meet the importance of embracing who they are,” Stowe said. “I also hope to learn about the different chapters across our country.” 

Jordan will also be facilitating workshops in the lower level of the convention hall.  Make sure you look for Jordan, say “hello" and welcome her to Illinois!
