Building a stronger Bridgeport FFA program

The Bridgeport FFA Chapter is making a strong return. It's only been a year and half ago when a group of citizens formed a committee to bring back the chapter and now that chapter is looking stronger than ever. After the first year of bringing back the FFA Chapter that had been dormant since the late 70's, Bridgeport is making a permanent commitment to the future of the program. In a interview with KNEB/Rural Radio Network, Bridgeport FFA Advisory Committee Chairman Mick Lund says over the last year the committee has worked to get the program a new building.

The new building is largely made possible with the strong support of the community. Lund says business and individuals donated a total of $108 thousand for the $300 thousand dollar building project.

The new addition will match the exterior of the high school. The new addition will be located on the north side of the high school. Lund says this will be tremendous improvement for the ag program. The new building will include classroom, room for their lab work and office for the FFA instructor.

Last week, Bridgeport FFA members showed their projects at the Morrill County Fair for the first time since the 1970's.
