It’s been since 1976 that the Mormon Trail School District has had its own FFA Chapter. In the spring of 2014 Mormon Trail School board along with administration decided that it was time for us to have our own chapter to benefit our community and school. This year’s members have already participated in several Career Development Events such as Soil Judging, Livestock Judging, Greenhand Quiz and have done very well. The freshmen attended Greenhand Fire­Up Camp in Indianola and enjoyed the activities, as well as, meeting members from other FFA chapters. The members have set many goals of which include to be involved more in the communities of Humeston, Garden Grove and Derby. The calendar is full of activities to come such as Districts, National FFA Week, Annual Spaghetti Supper, Food for America Program at the elementary, State Convention, Parent­Member banquet, hanging flags at local cemeteries, as well as, activities/events with the Central Trail FFA Chapter in Leon. The chapter just finished with their annual Fruit and Cheese Sales. FFA members appreciate past and future support from our communities and plan on returning that back!
