Conrad stated, “I liked taking those kids who had a tendency to fall through the cracks and giving them a purpose. It has been an interesting ride throughout the years.” When asked how he could get some kids to do what he wanted Conrad said, “I just asked.”
Gifts if given are requested to be in the form of a contribution directed to the FFA in the form of a scholarship in Conrad’s name to be given to a future senior.
