The Federal Hocking FFA Chapter was established in 1968 and is made up of over 150 members in grades 7-12.  

Through career development events, community service, and participation in chapter activities, our chapter strives to develop each student's potential and prepare them for their future careers. We participate in various career development events including Soil Judging, Meat Evaluation, Ag Mechanics, Outdoor Power, Ag Sales, and Job Interview. On a chapter level we help with the 4th grade ag day which teaches all 4th graders in Athens County about agriculture, hold petting zoos, and have monthly recreational activities.

FFA Motto:  Learning to Do, Doing to Learn, Earning to Live, Living to Serve.

FFA Mission:  FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.

FFA Creed:
I believe in the future of agriculture, with a faith born not of words but of deeds - achievements won buy the present and~ past generations of agriculturists; in the promise of better days through better ways, even as the better things we now enjoy have come to us from the struggles of former years.

I believe that to live and work on a good farm, or to be engaged in other agricultural pursuits, is pleasant as well as challenging; for I know the joys and discomforts of agricultural life and hold an inborn fondness for those associations which, even in hours of discouragement, I can not deny.

I believe in leadership from ourselves and respect from others. I believe in my own ability to work efficiently and think clearly, with such knowledge and skill as I can secure, and in the ability of progressive agriculturists to serve our own and the public interest in producing and marketing the product of our toil.

I believe in less dependence on begging and more power in bargaining; in the abundant and enough honest wealth to help make it so - for others as well as myself; in less need for charity and more of it when needed; in being happy myself and playing square with those whose happiness depends upon me.

I believe that American agriculture can and will hold true to the best traditions of our national life and that I can exert an influence in my home and community which will stand solid for my part in that inspiring task.

FFA Colors: Corn Gold and National Blue
