The FFA tribute this week goes to Amara Jackson, National FFA president.

Amara grew up in a small Michigan town and showed horses with her family. Her love for ag developed during her time in FFA. She enjoyed being involved in her local chapter, and loved attending her first state convention. After her first convention, she was excited to get more involved. Another highlight was attending the Washington Leadership Conference.

As president, she’s responsible to lead and chair the national FFA board of directors and sit on the board of trustees. She’s enjoyed learning how the national organization operates and sharing her voice on those boards.

The weekly FFA Chapter Tribute is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the good work of your local chapter. Tell us about what you're doing, give us some history from your group and tell our viewers of the work you do in the community. FFA chapters across the country deserve recognition for the work they do, make sure we include yours.

To have your chapter considered for this weekly feature, send along information about your group by e-mail to Max Armstrong at [email protected]. They'll get your group on the list of those that will be covered in the future. It's a chance to share your story beyond the local community.
