What is FFA?
FFA is a dynamic student-led leadership development organization for students of agricultural education. The FFA changes lives and prepares students for premier leadership, personal growth and career success.
FFA is considered an extracurricular activity under Poteet ISD. It is an integral part of the 3-circle model used in Agriculture Education to educate and provide several opportunities for students. Participation in the Poteet FFA program may include, but not be limited to, attending camps, conventions, and/or contest for our 8th grade and high school Poteet FFA members. Participation at the stock shows is for our members in the Poteet Junior FFA, 3rd grade through 7th grade and Poteet FFA grades 8th-12th.
What does F-F-A stand for?
F-F-A stands for Future Farmers of America, which is the official name of the organization, but we don’t use the full name and instead operate as the “FFA” because Future Farmers of America implies that we are all preparing to be farmers. Agriculture is much broader than farming and ranching. Members study things such as horticulture, aquaculture, food sciences, accounting, wildlife management, mechanics and engineering.
