Archer and Baker Earn FFA Jackets


Published: Friday, October 13, 2017

Haley Archer and Jacob Baker, students in the Warsaw FFA chapter, each received a Blue Corduroy FFA Jacket as a gift from local organizations. Haley Archer received her jacket through Clunette Elevator and Syngenta via the Gift of Blue Jacket program as a special project of the National FFA Organization.

The National FFA Foundation awarded a jacket to Jacob Baker in honor and recognition of Kip Tom's time on the National FFA Foundation board of trustees. Tom is a farmer from Leesburg.

The jacket unifies members in a long-standing tradition and reminds them that they are part of something larger than themselves. The official FFA Jacket is symbolic and an icon of an American tradition—instilling pride and responsibility on those who wear it.

Agriculture programs prepare students for high-demand careers in innovative industries like biotechnology, renewable energies, engineering, food production and more. They also teach students how to be leaders and prepare them to take on the challenges of the next generation.

The Warsaw FFA chapter makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
