The 2014 NAAE convention is now over and looking back on it, all I can say is, "Wow what a convention!" Professional development, business sessions, and committee meetings gave our members the opportunity to enhance their knowledge in a variety of agricultural areas and work at improving our organization.
The beautiful Opryland setting was a great backdrop for our convention as we renewed old acquaintances and made new ones.
I'm really excited to see how the new committee process is going to work, to tackle issues at the grassroots level, and be able to help make our organization stronger and serve our members better throughout the year.
As we close out 2014 and look forward to the year 2015, may we take time to reflect on the blessings that have been bestowed upon us and our Ag Ed students.
I believe that there is no other place in the world where we may live in freedom and pursue our dreams and ambitions in life. My hope for all of you this Christmas Break is to be able to spend time with your family and friends and enjoy a wonderful and safe Christmas holiday.
May you and your family have a blessed Christmas holiday and I look forward to working with you in the 2015 year.
