National FFA Foundation Creates Endowment to Honor Retiring CEO W. Dwight Armstrong

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 17:09:39 CDT

National FFA Foundation Creates Endowment to Honor Retiring CEO W. Dwight Armstrong At the end of June, Dr. W. Dwight Armstrong will retire as chief executive officer of the National FFA Organization and Foundation, but his legacy in agricultural education and FFA will live on in a newly created endowment called "The Dwight Armstrong Legacy Endowment."



During his seven-year tenure with the National FFA Organization, Armstrong has overseen an era of dramatic growth and success. The organization has achieved an all-time record high membership of 629,367 and he solidified close collaboration and complementary strategic direction for both the National FFA Organization and the National FFA Foundation.



"Dwight brought vision and leadership to our organization that has inspired our members, staff and volunteers across the country," said Molly Ball, President of the National FFA Foundation. "This fund will honor his legacy at FFA and continue his vision of growing leaders, building communities and strengthening American agriculture."



The Dwight Armstrong Legacy Endowment has two platforms. The first is the CEO Innovation Endowment platform. It establishes a fund that will provide future National FFA CEOs with a discretionary platform to pursue unique opportunities that promote leadership development for staff or to provide starter funds to further the FFA mission. The second platform, career success, will help fund the vision of "My Journey" which serves FFA members and partners with a direct pipeline to jobs and talent across the country.



“With his many years of being deeply involved in the agricultural industry, we hope his friends and associates will find this endowment to be a wonderful opportunity to honor Dwight and give back to an organization they care about,” Ball said.



Those interested in supporting the endowment can make a one-time gift or distribute the funding over the course of three to five years. Visit https://www.ffa.org/legacy for more information.
