The Zane Trace FFA chapter will be recognized as a three star chapter at the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis this fall. Only the top 10% of all FFA chapters in the nation are recognized for this honor each year. This will be the chapter’s 6th year receiving this award. There are many things the ZT FFA has done to be recognized for this award. Some examples are the annual sausage breakfast where a large percentage of the money is donated, Pioneer Pantry which is an in-school pantry filled with items that students who are in need of are allowed to take home. The chapter also recently built a blessing box outside of the school, along with Pioneer Pacers, a running club for grades three through five. Elementary lessons about agriculture are also taught by FFA members. The Zane Trace FFA also has a positive social media presence, and takes yearly trips to the National FFA Convention.
