A group of student leaders from the William H. Darr School of Agriculture has been traveling to FFA area banquets to debut a new partnership with PFI Western Wear to support the Missouri FFA Association.
The opportunity to show support for agricultural education at the high school and university levels began with a campaign by Durango Boots.
With every sale of the Durango Rebel and Lady Rebel FFA boots, Durango will donate $5 to the National FFA Organization.
Southwest Missouri is fortunate to be the home of PFI Western Wear, the largest western wear store in Missouri. The store’s owner is Randy Little, a longtime supporter of the William H. Darr School of Agriculture and of agricultural education in Missouri.
When his store started carrying the Durango boots, complete with the pledge of money to the National FFA Organization, Mr. Little approached the Darr School of Agriculture to express the company’s interest in supporting agricultural education from the store’s profits on the Durango Rebel and Lady Rebel FFA boots.
To showcase the partnership and encourage people to support agricultural education through the purchase of the Durango FFA boots, PFI Western Wear donated several pairs of the boots to be given to Area FFA Officers in Areas 9, 10, 11, and 12 in Missouri.
Students from the Darr School of Agriculture made the presentations at area FFA banquets in Carthage and Cassville, and will soon travel to the other areas to promote the partnership and build up excitement for the opportunity to give back to agricultural education with Durango and PFI.
So how can you get your hands on a pair of the Durango FFA boots and support National FFA, your Missouri FFA Association and agricultural education?

The incredible generosity and support shown by Durango and PFI Western Store is appreciated by agricultural education across Missouri.
