National FFA Gets Million Dollar Donation

The 86th annual FFA national convention underway in Louisville, Kentucky got off to a great start last night with a $ 1 million donation given to the organization.  Rapid City FFA member Isaac Aastgard says over 50,000 members are attending this year and got to witness the presentation.

South Dakota FFA State Treasurer David Strain says the state is well represented with a national officer candidate.

Convention goers had a chance last night to hear from Louisville Basketball Coach Rick Pitino. The event wraps up on Saturday.
