Farm Credit Services of America provides support to Little Switzerland FFA Chapter ...

Every two years Farm Credit Services of America donates to Waukon High School agriculture classes and its Little Switzerland FFA Chapter new FFA manuals and student handbooks. This year they donated 45 student handbooks and 10 FFA manuals used by students and members to explore opportunities in FFA, learn about the history of FFA, and much more. Waukon High School’s Ag One classes use these books almost daily, which causes some quick wear and tear, and these books are needed to not only help freshmen and younger students learn more about FFA and all it has to offer, but also so FFA members can keep up on new events in the program’s history and learn more about contests, SAEs and more.

The FFA Manuals are utilized by members to complete chapter operations. This includes effectively running chapter meetings, parliamentary procedure, programs, awards and policies. The Little Switzerland chapter appreciates Nate Gebel of Farm Credit Services of America for delivering the books to Waukon High School, and appreciates Farm Credit Services for its support of the school’s agricultural education program and FFA.
