Why Our Corduroy Club Members Support the Mission


"Stepping into the Ag room for the first time, I felt so out of place. I didn't picture myself as an ag student, let alone an FFA member. Despite all doubts, I quickly found a home in FFA. Showing up to my first ever FFA conference, I was prepared to learn about crops and livestock. Instead, the day was spent discussing topics such as leadership and teamwork. As I learned that day, FFA expands beyond agriculture. The organization utilizes the agricultural platform to equip its youth with skills and qualities that allow students to find success throughout any of life's endeavors. This is just one of several reasons why I chose to donate to the Corduroy Club. To give back to an organization that has invested so much in me, as well as thousands of other students. I cannot think of a better example of 'Living to Serve.'"  ~Hope Brecht



 "When I joined FFA, I found a home where I belonged: a group setting full of students-turned-friends with a shared interest in agriculture, becoming our best selves, and living life to the fullest. It led me down paths I couldn’t have imagined, broadened boundaries I didn’t know were there, and laid a foundation of communication and leadership skills that, years later, I now use every day. This is why I joined the Corduroy Club- it’s where I belong. It’s a group of friends, peers, and other individuals with a shared interest in making the future of agriculture just as bright as we remember it. I’m proud to have the opportunity to give back to an organization that gave so much to me and have a monthly reminder that it’s doing the same right now for students in schools across the state of Iowa." ~ Andrew Edson



 "I give monthly to the Corduroy Club because for so many years, Iowa FFA and the Iowa FFA Foundation gave me life-long friends, life-changing experiences and opportunities that have opened doors for me that I didn't even know existed. This is one small way that I can pay it forward for all of the good this organization has done for me. Agriculture's future depends upon those students wearing the blue corduroy and if my donation has the ability to play a small part in an FFA Member changing the world, then I have accomplished what I was put here on this earth to do." ~Zoie Shook
