Stewart to receive national FFA honor

Marshall Stewart, program leader and head of the 4-H Youth Development Department at North Carolina State University, has been chosen by the National FFA Organization to receive a special VIP Citation for making significant contributions to agricultural science education. The award, which will be presented in October at the National FFA Convention in Louisville, Ky., is one of the most prestigious awards a person may receive for supporting FFA and its programs.

Stewart, who became head of 4-H July 1, was formerly a faculty member in N.C. State’s Agricultural and Extension Education Department. In that role, he was responsible for overseeing FFA programs in North Carolina. Stewart has served on both the National FFA Board of Directors and the National FFA Foundation Board of Trustees.
