FFA State Officers Visit Ag 1 Source

Ag 1 Source recently had a visit from the Kansas FFA Association State Officers and Beth Gaines, Executive Director of the Kansas FFA Foundation, at our office in Hesston, KS. “Ag1 source is a proud sponsor of the Kansas FFA program,” Mike Smith, President and CEO of Ag 1 Source said.

Smith gave the student officers a brief tour and shared information about employment in agriculture. The group then went to lunch with Ryan Gale, Agronomy and Seed Recruiting and Doug Trumble, Grain and Finance Recruiting, and discussed the variety of jobs a background in agriculture has to offer these future leaders in ag. “I’m excited about the opportunities future agricultural leaders, such as these FFA officers, could have. It was a pleasure talking to them about possible careers in ag,” Smith said.

Those pictured include: Ryan Gale, Mike Smith, Kristin Isle, Treasurer; Michael Dowd, Vice President; Scuyler Zenger, Secretary; Max Harman, President; Garrett Craig, Sentinel; Miranda Depenbusch, Reporter; Doug Trumble, and Beth Gaines, Executive Director of Kansas FFA Foundation.


Mike Smith is currently serving his second term on the Kansas FFA Foundation Board of Trustees.

“The Kansas FFA Foundation exists to enable Kansas Agriculture Education and FFA programs to empower future leaders and their passions. The Kansas FFA Foundation does this by developing and sustaining collaborative relationships resulting in financial support and service opportunities for the Kansas FFA and its members.”(ksffafoundation.org)
