Whether it is bringing an animal to school or driving members to various contests, Southern Door FFA Alumni President Rich Olson can be found behind the wheel. Olson likens his alumni chapter as more of a booster club, with many of its approximately 30 members never being a member of the FFA as a youth. Supporting the Southern Door FFA’s 40-plus members takes a lot of work, but Olson says agriculture remains an important part of the community.
Olson says the biggest change he has seen in FFA has been the demographics with more girls than boys filling its ranks than ever before. This is part of a series celebrating National FFA Week with local chapters in Door and Kewaunee counties.
