Jay County, Indiana FFA Chapter
Located in Portland, Indiana – our next FFA Chapter Spotlight is the Jay County FFA.
The Jay County FFA is our final Indiana Beck’s Hybrids/Brownfield FFA Chapter of Excellence. As we visited with the FFA members in the chapter – one of the things that they pointed out was the size of their chapter. Because their membership is 248 members, it allows for more members to engage in a wide variety of activities; allowing each of their FFA members a unique experience.
In addition to the membership giving back to the community – the community is also extremely supportive of the chapter. Thomas Borgerding, a senior at Jay County says community members dedicate their time and funds to help the chapter when needed. Some of their support has gone to the Jay County FFA Greenhouse as well as the other shops used by the members to help richen the students’ FFA experience.
The FFA members were in agreement that their experience has been memorable and created an opportunity to learn that will continue to help them grow in years to come.
The Jay County FFA Chapter advisors are: Melissa Wolters, Brittany Bridges, Cody Linville, and Seth Swallow.
Congratulations to the Jay County FFA!
