From Chelsea:
It is a small town, and it is a passionate community, however those should never be a deterrent in my eyes. With the right individual, this program could continue to grow and shine.

We currently have:

  • Classroom and Lab set-up for CASE AFNR, ASA and APT
  • Large and amply set-up metal fabrication shop, with a 6’x 12’ Plasma Cam Table, MIG Welders, ARC Welders, Hydraulic Pipe Bender, and a lot of the rest of the works.
  • Small 9’x 6’ greenhouse, large enough to do small plant sales and plant science labs, but small enough to be an easy keeper during the off-season.
  • 33 member FFA Chapter with good parent and community support for a motivated advisor.
