The Lakeview FFA Chapter celebrated National FFA Week, March 2-5. This National FFA Week embraces more than 93 years of FFA traditions while looking forward to the organization’s future. More than 760,000 members participated in National FFA Week activities at local, state and national levels. These members have a passion for agriculture. Designated a national week in 1947, the week of George Washington’s birthday, National FFA Week gives FFA members an opportunity to educate the public about agriculture.
During the week, chapters conducted a variety of activities to help others in their schools and communities learn about FFA and agricultural education. Lakeview celebrated National FFA Week by participating in the following activities: FFA member breakfast, teacher appreciation, community service, and FFA T-shirt Day. Today, FFA provides the next generation of leaders who will change the world. As the top school-based youth leadership development organization in the nation, FFA helps young people meet new agricultural challenges by developing their unique talents and exploring their interests in a broad range of career pathways. FFA members are our future leaders, our future food suppliers, our future innovators and more! Whether it is through service projects or community gatherings, National FFA Week is a time for FFA members to raise awareness about the role the National FFA Organization plays in the development of agriculture’s future leaders and the importance of agricultural education.
The National FFA Organization is a school-based national youth leadership development organization of more than 760,000 student members as part of 8,700 local FFA chapters in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. The FFA mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.
