Preparing today’s youth to be tomorrow’s leaders helps ensure the communities we serve continue to thrive for years to come. The Future Farmers of American of Red Mountain High School have become stalwarts of the Mountain Bridge community in Mesa, Arizona – and their efforts are paying off.

The Red Mountain High school organization received FFA’s 2017-18 Community Service Award in recognition of 3,864 hours of service with the Mountain Bridge Community Association. Throughout the year, students volunteered their time at community events, including The Great Pumpkin Party, Gingerbread Lane and The Bunny Hop.

“The FFA students bring so many skills along with them each time they visit the community,” said Mountain Bridge lifestyle director Lisa Brennan. “They are excellent organizers, problem solvers, hard workers, self-motivated, great at interacting with people and an enormous amount of fun. I can really trust they will put their hearts into everything they do and leave a lasting impression. Our residents love having them here.”

The students weren’t the only ones honored at a recent FFA banquet, either. The organization presented Lisa an Honorary Chapter FFA degree.
