INDIANAPOLIS — The Obion County Central High School FFA chapter is celebrating National FFA Week, which is Feb. 16-23.
This year’s theme is “Grow,” and it celebrates more than 80 years of FFA traditions while eagerly anticipating the organization’s future. More than 550,000 members nationwide will participate in National FFA Week activities at local, state and national levels. These members come from rural, suburban and urban environments and are interested in the diversity of careers within agriculture.
FFA members are the innovators and leaders of tomorrow. Through agricultural education and hands-on learning, they are preparing for the more than 300 career opportunities in the food, fiber and natural resources industry.
National FFA Week is sponsored by Tractor Supply Co. as a special project of the National FFA Foundation and annually encompasses Feb. 22, George Washington’s birthday.
