“It helps me get all my fair entry dues paid for,” said Olsen, in regards to what she found enjoyable about her high sales. “It gets me get my FFA jacket and I will go to national and state conventions.”
Olsen accredited her salesmanship success to having grown up around family whom were also involved in FFA.
“My parents and sister started doing this from when she was in high school,” said Olsen. “I’ve carried that on and I keep building on that. I meet a lot of people when I go to state fair and a lot of people contact me to purchase from me.”
Said FFA Director Larry Vold, “Fruit sales have been ongoing in the community through the FFA for over 50 years. The Forest City FFA Chapter appreciates all the loyal customers and their support throughout the years.”
