The Krum, TX FFA chapter is promoting ag in the state and beyond

There is an FFA chapter in all 50 states, and one of the largest is in Texas. The chapter in the small town of Krum is playing an integral part in promoting ag in the Lone Star State and beyond.

“Our students sign up to take an agricultural science class. Here at Krum, we offer plant system program of study, we offer animal science program of study and agriculture mechanics program of study,” said FFA advisor, Ryan Pieniazek. “So, once they’re in a agriculture science class, they’re eligible to become a member of FFA.”

In Krum, Texas, FFA students prepare speeches and presentations on timely topics. It is just one small part of the leadership training arm of this nationwide organization.

“I think regardless if you go into anything in agriculture or not, the skills of public speaking, teamwork, the responsibility you gain from your SAE projects, the real connections, and your exposure to real life careers, I think, are invaluable as far as where students can go out beyond high school and get a job,” Pieniazek said.

FFA may stand for Future Farmers of America, but it is for more than just those who want to pursue a career in ag. Pieniazek notes, “Very few of our students will go back to the farm or own their own farm, but it’s the life skills and connections they’re making that make our program.”
