National FFA Week Celebrated - Monday

FFA members across the nation join together this week to focus on transforming purpose to action.

The week-long tradition began in 1947 when the National FFA board of directors designated the week of George Washington’s birthday as National FFA Week in recognition of his legacy as an agriculturist and farmer. The first National FFA Week was celebrated in 1948.

Today, FFA Week always runs Saturday to Saturday and encompasses Feb. 22, Washington’s birthday.

Locally, FFA Week is a time for FFA members, alumni, sponsors and community members to advocate for agricultural education and FFA, and share what FFA is and the impact it has on members.

Chapters plan events throughout the week allowing them to communicate with the school leadership, the student body and the entire community, demonstrating their passion for agriculture.

Some chapters host teacher appreciation breakfasts, others conduct “Agriculture Olympics” competitions, while others reach out to the community through service projects.

KTHS will be featuring interviews with area FFA students and advisors this week.  Today we begin with the Berryville Chapter and Luke Sugg and Kelby Howerton.  First, Janessa Smith.......
