If you don’t know too much about FFA, here’s a little background. FFA stands for Future Framers of America. The club provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education.

According to the FFA website: “Future Farmers of America” was founded by a group of young farmers in 1928. Their mission was to prepare future generations for the challenges of feeding a growing population. They taught us that agriculture is more than planting and harvesting – it’s a science, it’s a business and it’s an art.”

FFA at Bellwood-Antis is run by Mr. Webreck.
