“The Kansas FFA Convention recognizes members’ achievements throughout the year. We’re fortunate to have the support of generous sponsors like the Army and Army ROTC to make this event a success,” said Kansas FFA president Lindy Bilberry.
The Army and Army ROTC recognize the exemplary life and practical skills of Kansas FFA members and considers their sponsorship an investment in the Army’s future, said Katie Trembly Stein, a representative of the U.S. Army ROTC.
“Anticipating the growing technological complexity of the military profession, the U.S. Army ROTC is targeting some of its scholarships toward students who will major in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines,” Stein said. “We recognize Kansas FFA members begin learning many of these skills from an early age.”
Army ROTC is available in more than 1,100 colleges and universities nationwide, three of which are in Kansas. Army ROTC offers merit based scholarships that can pay up to the full cost of college tuition and fees and many other open educational opportunities.
