The Minnesota State FFA Convention is underway in Minneapolis, and the annual FFA Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony is taking place this (MON) evening. The Minnesota FFA Foundation’s Honors Reception and Annual Awards Night is taking place at the Mariucci Arena on the U-of-M Campus, and a total of 11 individuals are being inducted into the FFA Hall of Fame, including several from the local area. Our local residents being honored tonight for their contributions to supporting and furthering the goals of agricultural education and the FFA in Minnesota include: Jim Bartels of New Ulm, the late Bob Christensen of Sleepy Eye, Al Brudlie of Lewisville, and Kent Janssen of Sherburn. They will also be recognized during the Minnesota State Fair this summer. KNUJ again brings you comprehensive coverage of the state FFA Convention, including interviews with students from FFA chapters around the local area beginning at 1:15 this afternoon.
