The North Scott FFA has been ranked as one of the best in the country.
KWQC-TV6 reports students found out earlier this week their FFA is in the top ten out of over 8,600 groups in the U.S.
“I think everyone was in shock, it’s the first time this has ever happened to North Scott and it’s been a long time since Iowa has gotten to the top ten,” says Dylan Engelbrecht, a senior at North Scott High School tells KWQC-TV 6.
“FFA is not just about farming, it’s about the technology jobs, the business jobs, more than just farming, they always says it’s more than just cows, sows, and plows,” Engelbrecht says.
FFA advisor and agriculture teacher Jacob Hunter tells KCRG-TV 6 the school program is not only excelling in ranking but in the size of the program.
There were 34 students at North Scott when he first started. Now about four hundred combined students from the middle and high school are involved in FFA.
