In honor of the recent passing of Jerry Wheeler Cullison, the Jerry & Lynne Cullison Family Endowment has been set up.
Jerry Wheeler Cullison, lifetime farmer of 61 years and resident of Wellton, Arizona passed away on August 13, 2020 at the age of 82 with his family by his side. Jerry devoted his life to supporting FFA and agricultural education through selfless service. Serving as a National FFA Officer in 1957-1958, helping establish the Arizona Agricultural Education/FFA Foundation in 1985, and continuing to provide support and insight as a member of the Foundation board until June 2020. Jerry and his wife Lynne have supported FFA on the local, state and National level.
Through a generous contribution, he established the J.R. Cullison endowment. Named in honor of this father, J.R., this endowment has opened the door for countless students to pursue a career in agricultural education, a portion of which now teach agriculture in Arizona secondary schools. Jerry's legacy of support for agricultural education and FFA will continue to shine through the J.R. Cullison Scholar Award Program and scholarships.
Jerry was presented the Blue & Gold Award at the Inaugural Blue & Gold Gala in 2017 by the Foundation. The Arizona Agricultural Education/FFA Foundation is very grateful for the leadership, support and dedication to FFA which Jerry has provided through his life.
The Arizona Agricultural Education/FFA Foundation is proud to establish the Jerry & Lynne Cullison Family Endowment to honor the Cullison Family for the service they have provided to youth in agriculture and in memory of Jerry Cullison.
