It’s National FFA Week!

From February 20-23, students are encouraged to dress up each day in different themes. For example, Thursday is Blue and Gold Day, and Friday is Flannel Day. In addition, every student has a chance to win a $15 gift card by answering daily agriculture-related questions posted in the cafeteria.

But what is National FFA Week all about?

According to the FFA website, FFA chapters around the country celebrate National FFA Week. It’s a time to share with local, state and national audiences what FFA is and the impact it has on members every day.

However, local members like Kermit Foor see it as something a bit more personal.

“This week is for us to celebrate everything that has to do with agriculture,” said Kermit Foor.

It also gives the student body the chance to recognize the club in general.

“The club not only focuses on agriculture, but it also focuses on leadership and working together,”  said Kermit.

Cassidy Shawley, another member of FFA, said that she enjoys the club for many reasons.

“I enjoy the leadership I’ve learned, and i get to be around a bunch of great people. And its fun,” she said.

She also said how she encourages people to to join.

“It helps you grow as a person, and you learn valuable life skills from it.”
