Future Business Leaders of America (Advisor-Mrs. Hemphill)

Imagine building a portfolio of documented accomplishments to your academic experience. When applying for scholarships, you can demonstrate how you served in a leadership position, received awards or participated in projects for the largest business- based student organization in the world through the Business Achievement Awards (BAA), a self-directed, result-based business and leadership program designed to compliment academics while accelerating a student’s leadership skills.

 

“Future Farmers of America” was founded by a group of young farmers back in 1928. Their mission was to prepare future generations for the challenges of feeding a growing population. They taught us that agriculture is more than planting and harvesting – it’s a science, it’s a business and it’s an art. FFA continues to help the next generation to rise up to meet those challenges by helping its members to develop their own unique talents and explore their interests in a broad range of career pathways. So today, we are still the Future Farmers of America. But, we are the Future Biologists, Future Chemists, Future Veterinarians, Future Engineers and Future Entrepreneurs of America, too.
