CHRISMAN – The Chrisman FFA Chapter was recently given a donation from the family of the late Loren Loop.
The gift was a continuation of Loop and his family’s long-standing generous support of Chrisman FFA. FFA advisor Eric Dixon and Loop’s family agreed an appropriate use of the money was purchasing new FFA jackets for the freshman members who had not yet purchased a jacket or members unable to afford one.
Special permission was required from the National FFA Association to embroider the jackets with Loren Loop Memorial. After hearing the story, the national organization agreed and provided instructions on how the special wording should appear in relation to the members’ names and FFA pins.
