FFA or National FFA Organization is a program where students compete in livestock, ag mechanics, forestry. MHS Junior Seth Ball is no rookie to FFA.


“I have been in FFA since I was 12.” Ball said, “My brothers both joined it when they were in high school as well so I figured I would join it too.” 


Not only does FFA compete in these events. There are also scholarship opportunities to earn scholarships as well. MHS Junior Alex Barzee talks about these opportunities.


“I think it is a great way to get scholarships and meet new people.” Barzee said. 


So how does someone join FFA? There’s a few ways but the best way is to talk to one of our Advisors, Mr. Bair, Mr. Johnson, Mr. Dixon, and Mrs. Meacham Out in the CTE building.
