FFA Students Take Part in Interactive Workshops

Report Submitted by Alexis Peckenschneider

The Linn-Mar FFA Chapter welcomed Jake Hlas, northeast state vice president, and Jodie Mausser, state reporter, to a chapter visit to LMHS recently. While here, Hlas and Mausser led interactive workshops for the agricultural education classes.

During first block, the state officers talked about the many opportunities available to high school students enrolled in agricultural education and how to manage their time and priorities after high school going into college. The freshman in second block learned how to start a SAE (Supervised Agriculture Experience) and learned about how to become more active in FFA and how it can help students in high school and in the future.

FFA activities and award programs complement instruction in agricultural education by giving students practical experience in the application of agricultural skills and knowledge gained in classes. 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.
