The Cedar Springs Future Farmers of America (FFA) was established in 1946, and has consistently invested in the leadership of its members as an integral part of the Agriscience program at the High School. As part of its mission statement the FFA seeks to develop premier leadership in its members.
Many activities also encourage members to become involved in the community. This year the club has participated in leadership development through several conferences, fund raising activities, and participation in school and community events. One of the premier events this year saw the club hosting a farm day on the Land Laboratory, where all second grade children were escorted to a corn maze, and small animal exhibit on school property, and presented with several gifts. The event also included a hay ride around the school property. Another character building activity has a group of members acting as mentors to elementary students in need of assistance in school. The mentor-members meet weekly after school with their charges to help with their education and to provide and role model.
