"Agricultural Education and the National FFA
Organization was an outstanding way for me to gain real leadership experience at a young age. The program at Kiel is a cohesive unit, which provided me with countless opportunities to improve my public speaking and teamwork abilities all while learning about agriculture at the same time. This foundation has allowed me to continue learning and developing the skill set I need and use every day."

Josh Scott


“The Agricultural Education program at Kiel has
given me a better understanding of my role in the
broad spectrum of agribusiness. I am able to
compare my turf grass management business to
others across the state and nation. This has made me aware of ways to increase production, quality and service for my customers.”
