It's national FFA week this week and our afternoon Farm Show on WHOW kicked it off with officers from the LeRoy FFA chapter.
President MacKenzie Brackett and Reporter Taylor Spiker indicate the week is aimed to spread the message of FFA to their classmates and they have plenty planned for this week, not only for FFA members, but for the entire school.
LeRoy FFA has a busy spring ahead as the two indicate there will be a Farm Day where the grade school student can get up close and personal with some animals in May. And for the FFA members themselves, the warmer weather means it's time for district proficiencies, job interviews and public speaking.
The two emphasize the importance of joining FFA and the impact it's made on their high school careers. They say though farming is a part of being in the organization it is not the only part. It teaches responsibility, leadership and life skills.
