This year, the Quincy FFA Booster Club raised over $70,000 in a single auction to support Quincy students. The funds raised during the auction were used to enhance the FFA experience by purchasing precision farming drones, three trailers, an irrigation system for a 12-acre learning farm ground, and custom work to farm the 12 acres. In addition, the club removes any financial barrier that may prevent a student from participating in FFA, such as travel expenses, business attire, or the personalized FFA Official jackets. As a result of their generous support, the QHS FFA club has over 300 members, making it one of the largest FFA Clubs in the state.
“The Quincy FFA Booster Club has done exceptional work supporting Quincy High School students,” said Quincy School District Superintendent Nik Bergman who nominated the club. “The club embodies the Friend of the Children Award because of its contributions that enhance and profoundly enrich the lives of our students.”
