This week is national FFA week. Here at THS our FFA chapter ranges from 130-160 FFA members per year being the largest organization in our school. Our members are involved in all areas of the building of best buddies, FCCLA, Student body officers to nearly every sports team! In order to be in FFA you must also be enrolled in an Agricultural education class. This is a great way to get involved in your school and community while gaining leadership skills and building relationships.

So heres a video about FFA week
