It is always exciting to attend a state FFA convention. The Wisconsin FFA Convention was no exception. They really did a bang up job. I enjoyed making a surprise visit as the Honorable Dudley Hughes, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1908 to 1917. He co-sponsored the Smith-Hughes Act of 1917 which provided federal funds to support the teaching of agriculture in the public schools. I discussed why the act was needed and the consequences if it had not been enacted. As I posed with students for photos after the presentation, one wanted to know if I was the real Dudley Hughes. This student might be knowledgeable of agriculture but could use some help with math as the real Dudley Hughes would be over 150 years old.
