FFA Club Officers speak to Optimist Club
On February 21, FFA officers and Advisor Troy Talford spoke to the Optimist Club. FFA has its roots with George Washington. Washington raised animals, plants and crops. He kept extensive journals about his projects that allowed his discoveries to be used by others in the future. Federal legislation allowed career and technical classes such as Technical Education and Agriculture to be taught in high schools. Similar classes started in Sauk Prairie in 1916 because the community believed in the future. Officers shared the various Quality Standards of FFA. Some areas were Healthy Lifestyles, Personal Success, Citizenship, Safety (3rd grade Rural Safety Workshop), Agriculture Literacy (4th grade program and 7th grade Agriculture Leadership program).
