FFA and their contributions to Eaton

Future Farmers Of America (FFA) is a club here at Eaton High School. Heidi Lanning is the advisor of this club. Member of the club, Libby Schelich, said, “She is a part of this club to keep the culture of farmers alive and in mind.” The 4th week of february of 15 to the 19 2021 consisted of multiple days relating to farming and agriculture. Monday was president’s day, so we couldn’t do an event on monday. Tuesday was the coloring contest and the FFA questions. Wednesday was the animal farm, Thursday was spirit week where people would wear red white and blue and Friday was tractor day where tractors would be driven and parked at school and people could look at them. FFA week was a major success as many people learned new facts about the club and what farmers do and sacrifice to further restore the world and the town we live in. 

 

The club could use more members. If learning more about the development of America and making the town better as well as carrying on the message and culture that this association makes, then joining might be a considerable option. Doster Harper, the leader of the FFA association, “The National FFA Organization, formerly known as Future Farmers of America, is a national youth organization of about 650,000 student members as part of 7,757 local FFA chapters”
