Area schools are participating in FFA week this week, and every school has their own agenda for how they should celebrate. FFA allows students to grow life skills that will help them be prepared for the agriculture industry, prepare job applications and interviews, ag sales and much more. Stew-Stras High School's FFA Week is mainly built around fun and sharing the enjoyment of FFA with students from the Elementary and Jr. High Schools.
Alex Walden, Chapter Reporter for the Stew-Stras FFA Chapter, and senior in high school said throughout the week they celebrated with Tractor Day, a petting zoo, serving community breakfasts, and much more.
Olivia Telgmann, Senior and Treasurer of the Stew-Stras FFA Chapter, joined Walden and explained what the importance of the officers are and what they do both for the community, for the younger students, and for the future of their FFA chapter.
Telgmann and Walden appeared on the special NEWSTALK WTIM FFA Week portion of the Noon Farm Show.
