The Liberty County High School FFA celebrated National FFA Week, Feb. 17-24.
This week embraces more than 90 years of FFA traditions while looking forward to the organization’s future. More than 653,000 members participated in activities at local, state and national levels.
“These members have a passion for agriculture, leadership, and community involvement,” LCHS FFA advisor Jeci Bohannon said.
Designated a national week in 1947, the week of George Washington’s birthday, National FFA Week gives members an opportunity to educate the public about agriculture.
The Liberty FFA celebrated Week by participating in College and Career Readiness Day, Camo Day, ‘Merica Day, FFA Day, Unite Against Bullying Day, and Tractor Supply Day.
Through agricultural and hands-on learning, they are preparing for 255 career opportunities in the food, fiber and natural resources industry.
