Des Moines, Iowa – Saturday marked the beginning of F-F-A Week in Iowa. Scott Johnson, executive secretary for the Iowa F-F-A Association, says the theme for the week-long observance is “Transform: Purpose to Action.” The week signals not only the 70th annual F-F-A Week but another special date for the program.
That laid the foundation for creation of the F-F-A just 11 years later. Johnson says there will be special events statewide to honor of F-F-A Week, including Drive Your Tractor to School Day in some areas.
Iowa has 232 chapters of F-F-A and last year counted 14-thousand-700 members statewide. To learn more about Iowa FFA, click here.
