Bonnie Mohr Conducts Signing at Minnesota State FFA Convention

Bonnie Mohr, well-known rural agricultural artist of Glencoe, conducted an art signing at the 83rd Minnesota State FFA Convention at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities on Sunday, April 22. Her painting, “We Live to Share,” is a limited edition giclee print commissioned by the Minnesota FFA Foundation with the launch of the Minnesota FFA Foundation Legacy Club.

We Live to Share captures the spirit of agricultural education, the FFA experience and the opportunity for individuals to give back to an organization that helps develop leaders. Mohr was available before the official kickoff of the convention and also at a Past State Officer Reception. Mohr served as the Minnesota FFA Secretary from 1980-81.

“Being apart of the Minnesota FFA Association helped me in becoming the person I am today, by showing me that I can believe in myself. It also taught me the leadership skills that I needed to stick with building a business. It allowed me to dream the dream and to make it come true. Minnesota FFA Association really helps to take you to the places that you want to go by teaching you to work hard and believe in yourself.”
