Bob Frazee Meets With Citizenship Washington Focus Students
Last week, CEO Bob Frazee went to the Capitol to give Congress a briefing on the credit climate in rural America. After his testimony, he got a note from Congressman Peterson’s staff—there were some VIP’s who wanted to meet him! Bob was happy to meet these students from South Carolina State, part of a CWF (Citizenship Washington Focus) delegation learning about our legislative process first hand. The students were visiting Washington as part of a grant from Farm Credit—and when they heard that someone from Farm Credit was testifying, they wanted to meet him and thank him personally! Bob said it isn’t often that a regular person gets to feel like a celebrity—but it was a great opportunity to meet some of the students that our sponsorships support. Hope to see some of THEM in Congress someday!
