WTIM Morning Show Speaks with Taylorville FFA During FFA Week

The Future Farmers of America have a busy week as FFA chapters across the nation celebrate and recognize the events, programs, and skills developed through the largest youth-led organization in the U.S.

The Taylorville FFA Chapter has had a particularly successful 2023-2024 campaign as they traveled to the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis and secured the top spot in the category of Strengthening Agriculture.

Co-Presidents Drew Mickey and Abby Norris describe their experience.


FFA Week has members planning the themed school days about a month prior. Wednesday was “bring your tractor to school day.”


Both Mickey and Norris plan to continue on the agriculture route in their upcoming years as they head off to college. Abby Norris will attend Murray State University to study horticulture, while Drew Mickey will attend Kansas State University to major in animal science with a minor in agriculture communications.


WTIM will host FFA Chapters from Pana, Edinburg, and Nokomis for Thursday of FFA Week.

Drew Mickey and Abby Norris appeared as guests on the WTIM Morning Show.
