National FFA Organization

Fred McClure, 1973-74 National FFA Secretary

June 30, 2015

Here’s a little-known fact about Fred McClure: He is a former drum major for the National FFA Band! Fred’s impressive resume features a number of firsts, one of which was being the first African-American national FFA officer. During his professional career, Fred has worked with three U.S. presidents (Ford, Reagan and Bush 41), and today he is executive director of the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation. His advice to current FFA members is to participate in as many FFA activities as you can.
