The Meade County FFA Alumni strives to support the local FFA chapter in many aspects. The Meade County FFA Alumni members serve as volunteers when needed for the local FFA chapters and mentors as well. The alumni group also aids in the cost of conferences and competitions that students attend. These range from the state FFA convention, national FFA convention, regional competitions, leadership workshops like FFA camp during the summer, and Washington Leadership Conference, also known as WLC, every other year. Our local FFA Chapter will be attending WLC this year. This conference is very costly and considered one of the top leadership conferences that students have the opportunity to attend. The alumni group and members within our community work hard to offset the cost of attending this conference for the students.
The Meade County FFA Alumni also provide grants and scholarship opportunities to the local FFA members. Each member of the FFA is required to have a Supervised Agriculture Experience, or SAE. This can range from working for a business or starting your own business. For those looking to start their own business for an SAE the alumni group has created a grant application for students to complete in order to offset the cost of startup or upgrades to their current SAE. The lessons learned from an SAE, whether it’s working for a business or starting your own, are invaluable for the students as they begin their college careers or look to start their careers in the workforce following high school. The alumni group also offers a scholarship to one graduating senior that is attending college.
The Meade County FFA Alumni members realize the valuable opportunities that FFA provided to them not only in school but in their careers and life as well. They want to be able to continue to support the local FFA chapter so that the students may have the same opportunities that they did and more. The opportunities that FFA provides gives the students the building blocks to be strong leaders not only in their local community but also for their future careers and aspirations.
The Meade County FFA Alumni look forward to seeing you on Monday, February 24th, for their 4th annual chili supper in order to aid them in supporting the local FFA chapter and students. All proceeds from this event will go towards the students in the FFA chapter.
