Rusk FFA

About Us

It is our honor to announce that out of over 1,000 FFA chapters in Texas, the Rusk FFA has been ranked as the number 2 chapter in the state according to the National Chapter Award. The Rusk FFA also earned their 12th consecutive 3 Star rating at the National level, extending the Rusk FFA streak of the longest 3 Star rated chapter in Texas. The 3 star national rating and Gold Emblem State rating are the highest ratings a chapter may receive.

The Rusk FFA was also a State Gold Emblem Chapter according to the Golden Horizon Award. We hope that you the student and parents will take full advantage of all that the Rusk Agriculture Department and FFA has to offer.

Students enrolled in agriculture classes are automatically inactive members of the National FFA Organization and will receive the FFA New Horizons magazine free of charge. Students may become active members and enjoy the full benefits of the organization by paying their local Rusk FFA dues of $5.00.

If you have any questions concerning the information provided, please do not hesitate to contact the agriculture instructors at 903-683-5401.

Thank you,
Kelley Anne Hutchinson, Jessica Sanderson, and Brian Martin
