My children have been involved in many activities throughout their school careers, but the most beneficial to all of them has been FFA. As a parent and a teacher I can not say enough good things about this organization and what it does for kids. Many think that FFA is just about raising animals and doing agricultural projects, but it is so much more. An FFA member learns about failure, success, refining skills, research, current and past history of agriculture in our country and its importance, but most importantly they learn about leadership and self worth. I have taught for over 25 years and have seen students in a variety of settings, and my first national and state conventions were awe inspiring. All students stood tall and were proud to represent FFA and knew what that meant. They consistently prevailed with good manners, politeness and consideration to all. The experiences students have in the FFA have an immense effect on who they become as adults. FFA helps to build positive active citizens amd young adults who know how to make a difference for the positive. I was not introduced to FFA until my own children became involved, but I am currently an FFA Alumni member and will continue to be so in order to help this organization prosper and grow.
