Fisher, MN — This week is National FFA week and chapters across the country are celebrating in their own unique fashion through dress up days, social media campaigns, and fun activities. At the Fisher School District, FFA Advisor Kristen Schwarz says along with celebrating their current members, they hope to raise awareness of the organization and promote agriculture as a whole during their FFA week activities.

Just like everything else, the FFA programs have had to make adjustments due to the pandemic. Schwarz notes that most everything they’ve done has been done virtually this year.

Schwarz was born and raised around agriculture in the Fisher area, but there was no FFA program for her growing up. She says FFA is a vitally important program for this area to have, not just because of its roots in agriculture, but because of the leaderships skills that can be learned.
