National FFA Week – February 18-25, 2023
“Learning to Do, Doing to Learn, Earning to Live, Living to Serve” is the motto of FFA.
FFA and agricultural education provide a strong foundation for the youth of America and the future of food, fiber, and natural resources. FFA promotes premier leadership, personal growth, and career success among its members.
Pendleton High School FFA Advisors Marty Campbell and Kylee Hunt invest in their students who work hard before, during and after school to succeed. This includes working on projects, continuing their SAEs, and practicing for Career Development Events such as Ag Mechanics, Meats Evaluation, and Livestock Evaluation, all of which have enlisted the help of many community members.
