Future Farmers of America
Bishop Neumann introduced Agricultural Education curriculum and FFA in 2016, with classes starting in the fall. The FFA program is an exciting addition for our students, especially with the diverse educational options and jobs that are available throughout our state.
Once known as Vocational Agriculture, today’s Agricultural Education carries on the tradition of providing instruction through an integrated model of classroom instruction, leadership instruction, and experiential learning.
Knowing that the agricultural industry employs one of every three Nebraskans, and that world population will increase by over 2.5 billion people within their lifetime, students are motivated in this career field. They equip themselves for this reality in local classes/programs and during world-class state and national educational experiences. The Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources Career Cluster is comprised of seven Career Pathways, all of which are essential to the economic development of the Nebraska and across the U.S.
Congratulations to Miss Arp for completing the STEM based CASE training to be used in the classrooms. FFA Press Release
