Kimball FFA Chapter celebrates 75 years

The Kimball FFA Chapter held its awards ceremony at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 4, in the Kimball Area High School cafeteria to honor the W-FFA 8873Chapter accomplishments throughout the year. 

The Kimball FFA had a great turnout with ice cream and treats, and wonderful stories told by past FFA members and supporters of FFA. 

Stories alone show just how much of an impact FFA has on the lives of students and adults. 

For those going into high school, and those in high school, take a look at FFA; there is more that FFA as an organization offers than what is normally seen.
