My guest on today's AM Minnesota program will be Val Aarsvold Executive Director of the Minnesota FFA Foundation. I always get to do a short interview with Val at the State and National FFA Conventions. It will be fun to have more time to talk about what Val does and the Minnesota FFA Foundation to support the FFA Program in Minnesota!

I have known Val and husband Paul for a long time. When I first got to know them they were Ag Teachers and FFA Advisors at the Plainview High School. Paul is still an AG Teacher and Advisor while Val has moved to the Minnesota FFA Foundation. Val grew up in Goodhue and was in the FFA, as I mentioned she was an Ag Teacher and now their children are in the FFA.

Val said she has had a "ring side seat" seeing how the FFA has had a positive impact on students lives! I hope you can tune in at 9:30 this morning. If not of course later today the AM Minnesota Program will be posted on KDHL's web site.
