We are blessed to have a very active FFA chapter and we look forward to having your family become an integral part of our chapter and its activities. Since many of you may not be familiar with the FFA organization, we have put together this guide to be a resource for you. In it you will find information about the FFA, activities and events, chapter policies, and a few other useful items.
The FFA is indeed the greatest student-led youth organization in the world. Someone once said that FFA is a lot like an orange--unless you squeeze it, you don’t get much out of it. We hope that your child decides to “squeeze” all of the opportunities from FFA.
The rewards are indeed great. In addition to the educational and leadership skills, travel, moneymaking opportunities, and networking, students who are active in FFA are well prepared for college. There are many scholarships available locally and through state colleges and universities for students who have excelled in FFA. In addition, the National FFA provides over two million dollars each year in scholarship money for active members.
The FFA Mission:
The National FFA Organization is dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
