The FFA probably isn't what you think it is. FFA at RMS is for students in the Exploring Biotechnology course and helps them develop their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success. For many years the letters FFA stood for "Future Farmers of America" but in 1988 that changed. Today the National FFA Organization, while recognizing the heritage of its "Future Farmers", proudly develops future leaders in all aspects of agriculture, science, technology, education, and hundreds of other fields. Former FFA members hold leadership positions in virtually every Fortune 100 company and have led cities, towns, and states across the county. One former member actually became President of the United States!
We will be formally starting our FFA chapter at RMS this school year. FFA members will have the opportunity to develop skills in public speaking, parliamentary procedure, critical thinking, and many other areas through participation in events and contests throughout the year. Regular meetings will be held and student officers will be elected to lead the chapter. Check back here or with Mr. Robison for more information! You can also check out www.ncffa.org and www.ffa.org for more info on FFA!
National Junior Honor Society
