FMH is exhibiting at the National FFA Convention & Expo from October 26-29 in Indianapolis, Indiana. FFA chapters from around the country can enter for a chance to win a $500 donation for their chapter from FMH at the event!
FMH will also have four employees participating at this year’s Agriculture Future of America (AFA) Leaders Conference from November 10-13 in Kansas City, Missouri. This event gives high school students the opportunity to connect with their peers and explore careers in the ag industry, including summer internships at FMH. The FMH internship program employs 15-20 students per summer in various company departments.
“Attending the AFA Leaders Conference is a way for FMH to attract and educate the 'cream of the crop' agriculture students on job and internship opportunities,” said Tami Smith-Rohovit, FMH Human Resources Generalist/Recruiter II. “It’s great to increase their excitement about the future of agriculture!”
