We Will.” is the theme this year and more than 653,000 members around the nation will participate in National FFA Week activities at the local and state levels. “I Can.

FFA members set a positive example with their leadership, work ethic and community service activities. The focus of National FFA Week is to tell America about the great opportunities available for youth in agriculture. From its beginnings in 1928 as the Future Farmers of America, the National FFA Organization today reaches out to all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. From urban to rural schools, FFA is committed to developing character and leadership skills and preparing members for a lifetime of success in one of the 300 careers in agriculture. As a part of National FFA Week, Worth County Middle School FFA members will participate in the following special events:
Mrs. Sevier, Principal; signing the FFA Week Proclamation

FFA members are success-oriented students who are driven to achieve their goals and be the leaders of tomorrow. They stand out by recognizing the importance of being active in their schools and in their communities and are urged to step up when volunteers are sought, friendship is needed and leadership is required. Through classroom instruction and hands-on learning, agricultural education and FFA are making a positive difference for members every day. FFA members have opportunities to attend leadership contests, develop a supervised agricultural experience project, learn life skills and serve their communities with civic engagement. FFA members are our future engineers, scientists, teachers and producers. One of every five Americans is employed in the food, fiber and natural resources industries of agriculture, and Worth County Middle School FFA members are the future of these important industries. The Worth County Middle School FFA Chapter has 85 active members. While membership on the national level is over 653,000 strong, Georgia has over 300 Chapters and is currently third in membership with approximately 41,000 members.
