Today is the last day of FFA week. The week celebrates Future Farmers of America, with a variety of events. Mark Williams, Agriculture Teacher at Pella Community High School tells KNIA/KRLS News that FFA week really helps to get the students to think about consumption around the world. He says that the Chinese Vice President’s recent visit to Iowa was a perfect example for his students, as a large part of that visit was the purchase of millions of tons of soybeans. Williams says in the end, FFA week is important because it reminds people about the role farmers play across America.
