Bob watson memorial Scholarships

Bob Watson, a former agricultural educator from the Lafayette New York, was a long time president of the New York FFA Alumni Association and a dear friend to many in the agricultural education community. Among the many contributions that Bob made to Ag Education and the FFA was the creation of the annual toy auction to raise funds that would eventually go to support leadership training, Camp Oswegatchie, awards, and opportunities for thousands of young men and women. The Ag Ed community suffered a great loss when Bob passed away in 2002. We all miss him tremendously and he will never be forgotten.
