LG Seeds donated $1,000 to the Franklin-Monroe FFA Chapter. At this year’s Ohio Farm Science Review, farmers registered for a chance to win $1,000 to be donated to the local FFA chapter of their choice.
Ryan Denniston of Arcanum was LG Seeds’ grand prize winner. Denniston selected the Franklin-Monroe FFA Chapter to receive the $1,000 donation in order to help support future generations of agriculture.
LG Seeds Resource Manager, Kyle Seaburn, says giving back to the FFA is a great way to support future generations of agriculture.
“These kids are the future, and there is no better cause to donate money to than investing in them,” Seaburn said. “The FFA has led me to many opportunities in my career and it’s a great thing to be able to give back to these same programs. If we can give even one kid an opportunity that might have been the opportunity they needed to succeed.”
FFA Advisor, Matt Triplett, is excited for the $1,000 donation and said he and his students are thrilled they were chosen.
“We currently have 96 members in our FFA and have students participating in CDE events such as soil judging, parliamentary procedure, public speaking and livestock judging,” Triplett said. “This year we also took groups of students to the National FFA Convention and Ohio State FFA Convention. The money will be put to good use in helping pay for registration fees for all of these activities and towards our FFA banquet in the spring. We can’t thank Mr. Denniston and LG Seeds enough.”
