FFA


SPONSOR - Mr. Scott Ames

 

What does FFA do for the Ransom Middle School?

1. To develop competent, aggressive, agricultural leadership,            

2. To create and nurture a love of agricultural life, and

3. To strengthen the confidence of members in themselves and their work.


The Ransom FFA helps the school by raising money through fundraisers to use for campus improvement as well as student improvement.  Specifically, we started this fall by beautifying the Ransom MS campus and learned about nursery and landscaping in the process.  FFA also participates in many CDE’s or career development events, such as; Forestry Judging, Livestock Judging, Horse Judging, Creed Speaking, Opening and Closing Ceremony, Extemporaneous Public Speaking, Prepared Public Speaking, Dairy Judging, Tool Identification, and Ornamental Horticulture.  By competing in these events and others, students will develop character, train for useful citizenship, and foster patriotism, participate in cooperative efforts and provide and encourage the development of organized recreational activities and skills.


What do students collect by being in Ransom FFA?

In FFA we build leadership skills, and also create a positive difference in the students’ lives.  This year we have participated in the CPC, (Chapter President’s Conference in Daytona, FL), COLT, (Chapter Officers Leadership Training) in Marianna, FL and ILEAD, Ponce De Leon, FL. Moving forward, the Ransom FFA will have many members participating at the Pensacola Interstate Fair working in the Ag-Venture Barn helping younger students learn about agriculture life.  In October, students raised enough money to travel to Moultrie, GA to experience the Sunbelt Ag Expo, the nation’s largest ag expo. While taking part in these events, FFA students will be out of their “comfort zone” and become more open to try new activities and meeting new people to establish lifelong relationships.
