WASHINGTON – On Friday, July 29, U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) met with FFA students from Ava. Upon meeting the students, Blunt commented: “It is always great to meet with the next generation of farmers when they visit Washington. There is more opportunity ahead in Missouri’s ag industry than we have seen in decades, and the FFA is an invaluable resource in helping these students get the tools they need to be successful.” Shown above, from left to right, Senator Blunt, Layla Giorgianni, Lauren King, MacKenzie Lawson, Rebekah Evans, and Hannah Evans.
