Senator Marshall Visits Hays and Russell High School for FFA Week Proclamation

Hays, KS – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. visited Hays and Russell High School during National Future Farmers of America (FFA) week. Senator Marshall was a co-sponsor in support for the designation of February 17-24 being National FFA Week.

During the visit, Senator Marshall greeted Hays High FFA, a chapter of about 50 students, and Russell High FFA, a chapter of about 24 students, and presented each of them a signed copy of the National FFA Proclamation. Senator Marshall provided words of wisdom to the students as they get ready to begin the next chapter of their lives and discussed the importance of agriculture in America.

Hays High FFA students presented Senator Marshall with two sets of Hays FFA gloves as a thank you for the visit. 

“As a fifth generation farm kid, I know how hard these students work and I’m proud to present them with a signed copy of the FFA Week Proclamation,” Senator Marshall said. “FFA is a wonderful organization that teaches students the importance of where their food comes from and leadership skills they will hold with them for the rest of their lives.”
