This week is National FFA Week. WGEL recently visited with Mulberry Grove FFA Chapter President Brett Schewe, who told us FFA is meaningful because it prepares students for life after high school.
“Before I came to high school, I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to be,” said Schewe. “After being in FFA I’ve decided I want to go to college at Texas A&M and double-major in ag education and crop science. Coming into it, I didn’t quite have a plan, but being in FFA has given me, not only all these opportunities, but also a career plan for the future.”
In celebration of FFA Week, Mulberry Grove’s chapter will sport the official blue and gold FFA colors, hold their teacher appreciation luncheon, and hold the High School Ag Olympics this afternoon.
Greenville’s FFA chapter will celebrate today with “Farmer Dress Up Day” and a barnyard zoo. They will also hold an FFA work Auction this evening. A meal will be served at 6:00 p.m. and the auction will begin at 7:30 p.m.
