BILL JACKSON MEMORIAL FFA AWARD
The Northeastern Colorado Heritage League has established a fund in memory of Bill Jackson who was a charter member of the League and served on the League’s Board of Directors serving as its President in 2014.
Since he had been an agricultural reporter for so many years, it was agreed that we should start a fund related to agricultural pursuits. We decided a fund to promote FFA activities would be appropriate. Since he had been a member of FFA, the first award was presented to his former chapter, Yuma FFA.
It was decided that the award would be distributed on a rotation system and will be awarded to the chosen chapter, not an individual member.
