The Miller County High School Chapter is led by Mr. Bill Spooner, and the Miller County Middle School FFA is headed by Mr. Wes Pace. These two chapters receive local, area, state, and national honors because of the quality of those who lead the exceptional students who are members of these highly respected chapters.

If you have never been to one of the Miller County FFA banquets, you have missed something that will make anyone proud of our young people. They are not only well educated in this field, but they would impress the people in this country as they go through their programs in an orderly manner.

If you haven't noticed to date, watch these pages for coverage of our local FFA chapters and some of the accomplishments that these young people are making in our schools, our community, and our world.

Miller County is fortunate to have these fine chapters available for our students. The citizens of this county know what they have done and are doing to make our educational system better and our community even better because of the training and leadership that the Miller County FFA members can provide for the present and the future in the county.

Congratulations, FFA, for your good work for us all.

Also, thanks to the advisors of these chapters for taking the time to help make the FFA Chapters what they are today.
