FFA exposes students to opportunities in the agriculture industry

As National FFA Week continues, many members are reflecting on the impact the organization has made on their lives.

Braden Reamer is a member of the Tri High FFA chapter and a senior at Tri Junior-Senior High School.

“FFA to me is something that I can really do to give back,” he says.

He says the organization helps students learn about the agriculture industry.

“It helps expose a lot of the agriculture industry to students,” he says. “A lot of times people nowadays don’t really know too much about agriculture and it’s good to know where food and all this stuff come from.”

Reamer shares an example of his FFA Chapter sharing the agriculture industry with and giving back to the community.

“Being in a rural community there are not a lot of opportunities for kids to trick-or-treat and walk around and have fun with their friends. Every year around Halloween we set up a Trunk-or-Treat and a lot of families set out candy. We do a lot of other things to expose them to the ag industry with everything being ag-related. For example, there’s a basketball hoop game that we’ve set up in an old grain bin and we really set up a lot to help give back and give an opportunity for learning bout agriculture in our community.”

National FFA Week continues through Saturday.
