across the state of Florida as a leader and advocate for the agriculture
industry nationally and internationally. For about 300 days, Kyle will travel
the state, country, and the world as he presents numerous conferences,
workshops, and other events to promote agriculture and FFA.
Kyle began his

Approximately 5,000 FFA members, advisors, and guests gathered to compete in
leadership development events, attend leadership workshops, participate in a
Day of Service, and take part in the delegate process. One of the highlights of
