with this tremendous opportunity to represent our State and our entire

leadership training through agricultural education and advocacy. As a 
former FFA member myself, I can attest that my experience not only 
helped shape my career as a farmer, but helped prepare me to represent 
the Fourth District of Washington in Congress.
  Throughout his year of service to FFA, Cole and his fellow national 
officers will lead workshops and conferences across the country, 
cultivate relationships with national agriculture leaders, and help set 
policies that will guide the future of FFA.
  Cole: Washington's entire agricultural community is proud to have you 
representing us, and we look forward to following your journey on 
behalf our Nation's producers.
  Mr. Speaker, I encourage all of my colleagues to please join me in 
congratulating our national FFA officers.
