As South Dakota FFA chapters wrap up their school year, Paulsen’s mailbox has been overflowing. Thank-you notes have been flooding in thanking Paulsen for its annual sponsorship of the South Dakota FFA Convention’s Snapchat filter.

“Our team is focused on moving rural America and what makes more progress in rural South Dakota than supporting our young people in FFA?” said Paulsen’s Chief Technology Officer, Sara Steever. “Sponsoring social media at the convention is a small gesture of our support for the future of agriculture, but the outpouring of gratitude we receive back from the FFA students has been significant.”

Paulsen’s team has received an unbelievable stack of thank-you notes. These notes come in all shapes and sizes, from crayon drawings to meticulously penned letters. Some are chicken scratch, while others are beautifully written.

“These notes are as varied as the students themselves, but each one is a genuine expression of gratitude,” added Steever, a mom of two former FFA’ers whose experience shaped their professional careers.

These thank-you notes are more than just pieces of paper. They reflect the positive impact that FFA has on young lives and why Paulsen is proud to support the South Dakota FFA Convention and the future of agriculture.
