The Mid Prairie FFA Chapter in Wellman was recently selected as a 3 Star chapter for the National Chapter Award Program. Elsa Schmidt, Mid Prairie Ag Instructor and FFA Advisor says the award puts them in the top 1% of all the FFA Chapters in the nation. Mid Prairie has 75 FFA Members in their chapter. Schmidt says the award is just continuing a great tradition. Schmidt says they have had great leadership from their students who work really hard to get the agricultural story out to more people in the community. Schmidt says they do a wide range of activities including cleaning the highway, working with various groups, community assistance, and school activities such as a student seat belt check.
