While I was never in FFA, I watched my Uncles, my brother, and my male friends succeed in FFA projects in my small rural high school. We had a small, but mighty chapter. I graduated with a degree in Ag/Hort and married a boy who loved agriculture and wanted to teach...that's where I saw kids blossom. They might not have it in the classroom, but with FFA everybody had a niche. I became so passionate about this area of agriculture, I went back to school, received my ag ed teaching license and now teach both ag. and science to Jr. High and High school students. I am the JH advisor and boy do they have energy! I have to say I love their enthusiasm and this year's convention set them on fire...it was awesome!! They can't get enough! Makes my job a lot easier and gives us all something to look forward to in the future, rest a little easier, knowing that it will be in good hands as long as there are Vo-Ag programs and the FFA.
