November 28, 2016, was a day that opened I path I never expected to be
opened. That day was the day I started school at Clark County Jr/SR High School. Clark
County is a very small rural school and as I entered the school and started to get settled
I realized that something was missing.
Clark County High School’s Agricultural program was slowly going down the
train when I transferred. In an effort to help out the school and the students that loved
the Ag Classes so much. I started to notice how much I missed the FFA as I had a chance
to travel with my previous chapter to the Western National Roundup to judge livestock.
After returning back from Denver I decide it was time to take action so I
approached the Ag instructor MR. Lantis and ask if I may head up an FFA chapter. From
that point on the ball was rolling to start up the FFA at Clark County. After a few hard
weeks of teaching the students, recruiting members and gaining community support it
was time to launch the FFA chapter in Clark County.
February 15, 2017, we hosted an FFA Opening Banquet and Auction. The
the community showed up in full force with over $2800 from our auction and donations.
We will soon be receiving our chapter charter at State Leadership Conference in Twin
The point behind this blog isn’t to brag but more to encourage you to look for
opportunities to grow. Grow your chapter; grow you Agriculture Education program,
we all can do it the question is will we put in the effort to make that change? Dust
settles we as Agriculturalists don’t keep growing and achieving your goals.
