As we’ve said time and time again, in FFA, we are a family. It doesn’t matter where you come from, the experiences you have had, or what you plan to do in the future, FFA creates a lasting bond in all of its members.
In every family there are ups and downs, and currently in North Carolina FFA, one of our own is struggling. Beverly, Hannah, and I had the the privilege to attend an event in support of Tasha Morris, past state FFA president in 2002-2003. Tasha is currently undergoing treatments for cancer, and as her condition continues to unfold, the expenses associated with her medical procedures are rising. However, through the love and generosity of individuals at the South Rowan alumni fall social, some of those expenses can now be taken care of.
The expenses, of course, are the least of her family’s worries. Though Tasha is physically ill, her spirit is still just as positive as ever before. Her father shared stories with us about the uplifting things she has said before undergoing procedures. Her faith in God is amazingly strong, and her attitude on life is something that we can all learn from. She is a true inspiration!
