Orion Samuelson profiles Arcadia FFA in Arcadia Nebraska, this 35-member group, although not the biggest FFA, has over half the high school participating in serving the community. FFA member Ashley Einsphar talks about how the chapter was shut down when her dad was in high school, and reopened when she was in eighth grade.
The weekly FFA Chapter Tribute is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the good work of your local chapter. Tell us about what you're doing, give us some history from your group and tell our viewers of the work you do in the community. FFA chapters across the country deserve recognition for the work they do, make sure we include yours.
To have your chapter considered for this weekly feature, send along information about your group by e-mail to Orion Samuelson at Orion@AgBizWeek.com or to Max Armstrong at Max@AgBizWeek.com. They'll get your group on the list of those that will be covered in the future. It's a chance to share your story beyond the local community. Drop Orion or Max a "line" soon.
