The National FFA Organization (formerly known as the Future Farmers of America) envisions a future in which all agricultural education students will discover their passions and build on that insight to chart a course for their education, careers and personal futures. FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. In 1988 the official name of the organization was changed from “Future Farmers of America” to “The National FFA Organization” to reflect the growing diversity of agriculture.

Today, agricultural education prepares students for successful careers and a lifetime of informed choices in global agriculture, food, fiber and natural resources systems. FFA is one part of the three-component model for school-based agricultural education. The other two parts of the model include the agricultural education classroom/laboratory and supervised agricultural experience.

Our sponsor for FFA is Mr. Ethan Hunziker.  Mr. Hunziker has been in FFA since he was in high school, so he is very knowledgeable about the organization and its components.

For more information about FFA, how you can join, or how you can serve as a community partner or supervised agriculture experience partner, please contract Mr. Hunziker at the number below or email him at:
