Members from the Henryetta Future Farmers of America were traveling around Henryetta Friday to hand out chocolate covered pretzels and a letter of thanks.

The letter was to supporters of the newly established Henryetta FFA chapter.

It read: “As a newly established chapter, the communities support is vital to have our chapter thrive. “We are beyond thankful for people, like yourself, who have shown generous support in helping build this chapter from the ground up. We cannot express out gratitude enough for all your support.

“Our chapter has been active in finding different competitions that students can compete in and learning what the agriculture industry has to offer. This chapter has already began breaking kids out of their shells and molding them to be successful in whatever career they choose. So far, students have competed in various competitions and brought home our first big win at the Tulsa State Fair Cattle Grading Competition. The team brought home 3rd out of 220 teams.”

“In FFA, giving back to the community is a major part of what we do. We have already began cleaning up Main Street, and have various community service projects to come. If you ever need help, please feel free to give our chapter a call. We love working with the community. Thank you again for everything!”

The letter was signed by President Morgan Dumond, Treasurer Skyla Notley, Secretary Nathan Welch, Reporter Cheyenne Vanmeter and Sentinel Ryan Clark.

FFA is not just for students who want to be production farmers; FFA also welcomes members who aspire to careers as teachers, doctors, scientists, business owners and more.

For this reason, the name of the organization was updated in 1988 after a vote of national convention delegates to reflect the growing diversity and new opportunities in the industry of agriculture.

Today, the National FFA Organization remains committed to the individual student, providing a path to achievement in premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.

FFA continues to help the next generation rise up to meet those challenges by helping its members to develop their own unique talents and explore their interests in a broad range of agricultural career pathways.

So today, through still the Future Farmers of America, the group can become future Biologists, future Chemists, future Veterinarians, future Engineers and future Entrepreneurs of America, too.
