Central Illinois FFA Chapters Highlight National FFA Week

Central Illinois FFA Chapters are highlighting their programs during National FFA Week.


On a live noon Farm Show members of the Clinton FFA chapter told Regional Radio they will be hosting a Chicago FFA chapter in a unique opportunity to teach them about rural agriculture. Clinton FFA Chapter Vice-President Conley Schick shared this opportunity with Regional Radio



The Clinton FFA Chapter is very excited about this opportunity to share agriculture with a different part of our state. Clinton FFA Chapter President Davis Howell shares his excitement to learn more about urban agriculture through this experience.



Jolee Maharas from the Heyworth FFA Chapter explains each FFA student keeps record books, or SAEs. Those are kept throughout the year and can be used to advance a student throughout their FFA career.



According to Emma Quinton, her SAE is training her donkeys to interact with humans and ultimately hopes to see them become kid-friendly. 



The celebrations do not end today, as dress-up days and after-school events last until Friday for the Clinton FFA Chapter.
