FFA Chapters around the area and across the country are preparing for the start of National FFA Week this Saturday. Alexandra Gast is Missouri FFA’s state secretary.

Gast says FFA Week is more than just a celebration of the organization’s past, but also how it prepares students for the future.

Gast currently attends Mizzou and is a member of the Nevada FFA Chapter. National FFA Week runs February 22nd through the 29th.
