Beck has been instrumental in having the city of Louisville host the National FFA Convention & Expo, both during the city’s first stint as host from 1995 to 2005 and its current three-year tenure. The Louisville resident served on the local host committee, providing guidance for the technical volunteer needs as well as assisting with securing operational funds for the convention and expo. When the convention and expo returned to Louisville in 2013, Beck served as chairman of the committee in addition to many other roles. Beck's passion and desire to ensure that FFA members had a first-class experience while attending the convention and expo are unmatched.

“The VIP Citation recognizes the dedicated individuals who contribute to the FFA mission of student success through their hard work and cooperation,” the organization’s CEO Dwight Armstrong said. "Without such strong and outstanding commitment, FFA would not be able to help build strong character in its members, who in turn build strong families, communities and industries.”

The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 610,240 student members who belong to one of 7,665 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
