FFA Chapter Signing
TMP-Marian signed into the National FFA Organization, as a member of the Northwest District in Kansas. Currently, there are 19 members in our chapter. We will be 1 of 14 new chapters in Kansas this year. However, TMP-Marian is the first chapter ever in a private school. Two Kansas State University FFA Officers made the trip to help sign our new chapter into existence. They explained the FFA Creed and the important meaning of the FFA jacket and seal. President Jacob Schmeidler lead the TMP-Marian Officers in signing the FFA Chapter Charter.
The letters “FFA” stand for Future Farmers of America. These letters are a part of the history and the heritage of FFA. However, FFA is not just for students who want to be production farmers; FFA also welcomes members who aspire to careers as teachers, doctors, scientists, business owners and more. For this reason, the name of the organization was updated in 1988 after a vote of national convention delegates to reflect the growing diversity and new opportunities in the industry of agriculture.
Today, the National FFA Organization remains committed to the individual student, providing a path to achievement in premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
