"I Believe in the Future of Agriculture" Spoken by Spencer Struck in National Finals in IndyFri, 23 Oct 2009 12:58:28 CDT
"I Believe in the Future of Agriculture" are the words that open today's version of the FFA Creed. And Spencer Struck of the Kingfisher FFA delivered the five paragraphs that make up the Creed of the organization on the National Speech Finals stage on Friday morning, having made the Final Four in this contest designed for Freshman students of Ag Education, just really getting started in their High School FFA career.
While the original words that I memorized and gave in several contests up to the state level in Kentucky a lot of years ago were "I Believe in the Future of Farming" the pillars of truth that E.M. Tiffany wrote over 70 years ago still ring out with authority.
Struck delivered the Creed without missing a beat, than handled his questions very well. Afterwards, he told me that he was very nervous just before he went on stage, but felt good about the end result with his career of saying the Creed now officially in competition now officially behind him. Spencer joins fellow Kingfisher FFA Chapter member McKenzie Walta as the two most recent Oklahomans who have made the finals of the national Creed contest- and Spencer and McKenzie also will share the suspense of having to wait until Friday evening to find out how they did in the Final Four of their speech contests- Walta spoke in the National Final Four of Prepared Public Speaking on Thursday.
