Highland FFA, a national organization founded in 1928, was created to educate high school students about agriculture. The Highland FFA offers a variety of activities for members to participate in, such as Career Development Events (CDE’s), Relay for Life, and multiple volunteer opportunities.

Some CDE’s offered to the FFA members are forestry, dairy foods, livestock judging, horticultural, and public speaking.
