Support the Future of Agriculture

The Citrus & Specialty Crop Expo brings industry members together. We take pride in supporting agriculture students because they are the future of the industry.

The Citrus & Specialty Crop Expo gives Florida FFA Association officers the opportunity to network with industry representatives. The event allows the officers to experience firsthand how the agriculture industry works together.

A new Florida FFA Association officer team is selected each year in June at the Florida FFA state convention. Members of the 2022–2023 officer team include:

  • President – Annelise Bullard
  • Secretary – Abby Kruse
  • Area 1 Vice President – Laken Troup
  • Area 2 Vice President – Carleigh Newsom
  • Area 3 Vice President – Tyler Liab
  • Area 5 Vice President – Austin Holcomb
  • Area 6 Vice President – Addie Ferguson

These young leaders are a key component to the success of the Citrus & Specialty Crop Expo. They work hard throughout the event from set-up to tear down.

The newly selected FFA officer team will be selling raffle tickets during the Expo on Wednesday, Aug. 17 for a smoker donated by Hay’s LTI. The drawing will take place on the trade show floor during the grower networking reception on Wednesday.

Please support Florida FFA by purchasing raffle tickets!
