After serving for the year, one of Dawson's highlights was the annual convention. It was an exciting experience with great energy. He's loved meeting with students and experiencing the diversity of agriculture over the year as an officer.
Dawson has been active in agriculture since he was a kid, and joining FFA was a logical choice. But he never imagined how much he'd enjoy it. He's also enjoyed the leadership positions.
Dawson is a political science major with an emphasis on pre-law.
The weekly FFA Chapter Tribute is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the good work of your local chapter. Tell us about what you're doing, give us some history from your group and tell our viewers of the work you do in the community. FFA chapters across the country deserve recognition for the work they do, make sure we include yours.
To have your chapter considered for this weekly feature, send along information about your group by e-mail to Max Armstrong at firstname.lastname@example.org. They'll get your group on the list of those that will be covered in the future. It's a chance to share your story beyond the local community. Drop Orion or Max a "line" soon.
