FFA chapters in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands will participate in National FFA Week that began Saturday and runs through February 29. The FFA members will celebrate what FFA means to them. This is a great opportunity for FFA chapters to highlight the fun the members have, while also emphasizing agriculture education with its future leaders.
Every year, the National FFA Organization celebrates FFA Week during the week of George Washington’s birthday, February 22, in recognition of his legacy as an agriculturalist. FFA members organize activities that raise awareness not only about the National FFA Organization, but also the role agriculture plays in students’ lives.
KTHS will be airing Public Service Announcements and interviews with local FFA members and their advisors from Berryville, Green Forest, Eureka Springs and Alpena FFA Chapters his week.
Larry Brooks is the FFA Advisor for Berryville Schools.
