“I am proud to support FFA members by sponsoring scholarships which encourage excellence while enabling students to pursue their educational goals and future dreams,” said Ryan Ball, general manager at Rick Ball Ford Lincoln. “I realize that FFA is extremely important to our rural area and it provides leadership skills, personal growth and career success training throughout the organization. I am excited and pleased to sponsor and provide these scholarships, it’s a great way to recognize and assist our youth.”
