Stuttgart, Ark.: Riceland Foods team members joined Arkansas FFA leaders, educators, supporters, and sponsors at a ribbon cutting ceremony to dedicate the renovated Fletcher Leadership Center for the future of agriculture education and Arkansas FFA members and FFA advisors at Camp Couchdale located in Hot Springs, Arkansas on Wednesday.

Last year, to commemorate the 100th anniversary, Riceland Foods announced a pledge of $100,000 to the Arkansas Future Farmers of America Foundation during the annual meeting. This donation was used to assist with upgrades to Camp Couchdale, specifically the renovation of the Marion D. Fletcher Leadership Center.

As a result of the pledge, Riceland was able to secure the first naming rights to a classroom within the Fletcher Leadership Center. Our cooperative is proud to support Arkansas FFA and hope all who visit Camp Couchdale will enjoy it for many years to come.
