The FFA Chapters of Richlands and White Oak High Schools joined OCS Superintendent Rick Stout to declare the week of February 17 – 24, 2018 FFA Week.

With the help of Richlands and White Oak faculty and student officers from both chapters, Stout signed the official proclamation designating FFA Week.  This year’s theme, “I Can. We Will.” embraces almost 90 years of FFA traditions while looking forward to the organization’s future.  FFA week is a time for FFA members to share agriculture with their fellow students as well as their communities.

FFA is an intracurricular student organization for those interested in agriculture and leadership. It is one of the three components of agricultural education.  Today’s members are encouraged to live a life of service as leaders in their schools and communities and pursue bold careers in agriculture that will feed the growing population.

The organization remains committed to the individual student, providing a path to achievement in premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.  The FFA is made up of future biologists, chemists, veterinarians, engineers and entrepreneurs of America.
