The success of our Manheim FFA chapter can be attributed to the leadership of our teachers, the diversity of our students and the endless contribution of time by our student’s parents.

Our dedicated parents coach CDE teams, drive members to events, guest speak to classes, help set-up and take down displays, volunteer time during the Manheim Farm Show, coordinate fund raisers, chaperone trips and recruit incoming students to elect ag classes and join the FFA. Most of all they support their children in pursuing an education in AGRICULTURE.

Ag Industry Partners

We are proud of our partnerships with the numerous agribusiness and community businesses that support our Agriculture Education Program.
Our students make contacts with industry leaders via:

  • Career Development Event Judges
  • Field Trips
  • Guest Speakers
  • Job Shadowing
  • SAE Projects
  • Sr Co-Op Employment
  • FFA Activities
  • Ag Literacy Programs
  • Ag Industry Workshops
  • Community Service Projects
