Washington’s Yelm FFA is largest chapter in country for second time
From Capital Press:
Yelm High School’s FFA chapter in Washington state had the most enrolled members in the nation during the 2021-2022 school year, with 1,280 members.
This marks the second time the chapter has achieved the honor. Yelm was previously the top chapter during the 2015-2016 school year.
The chapter typically lands in the top 10 largest chapters, said Dusti Nash, a Yelm ag teacher for 22 years.
Last year, 1,514 students attended Yelm High School.
Every freshman at Yelm High School has the opportunity to take at least one agricultural class, said Matthew Mounts, a Yelm ag teacher for 23 years. An ag class is a requirement to be an FFA member.
