Overview      
The Alumni strives to support agricultural education, strengthen the FFA, and promote a greater knowledge of the agriculture industry. It is in the local community that a FFA Alumni affiliate can find real meaning. The help rendered to a local FFA chapter, the agriculture education department and the instructor is invaluable. The local FFA Alumni affiliate can assist the FFA members and the Advisor in a multitude of ways to make the learning experience more meaningful. Skills and abilities learned now can only make for a better tomorrow as these young leaders emerge.
