FFA Week: Advisor Spotlights- Mrs. Chapman & Mr. Bronar



Why did you choose to teach/be an FFA advisor?

Mrs. Chapman- “FFA had a really big impact on me in high school. I enjoyed participating and went to college to major in FFA. I wanted to make a large impact on high school students and help them understand the importance of agriculture, perfect their public speaking skills, and responsibilities.”

Mr. Bronar- “Ms. Chapman convinced me to become an FFA advisor.”

How long have you been involved with FFA?

Mrs. Chapman- “I was involved in FFA from 7th grade until I graduated High School. I participated in hosting FFA activities for the local FFA’s while in college and I have been teaching for 5 years.”

Mr. Bronar- “I have been involved in FFA ever since I was in 3rd grade.”

What do you find the most rewarding part about being in your position as an advisor?

Mrs. Chapman- “Seeing students grow in what they participate in. A lot of kids are nervous at first, especially in public speaking.”

Mr. Bronar- “One of the most rewarding things about being an advisor is seeing the growth in the students.”

What would you say to those students who are “on the fence” about joining FFA?

Mrs. Chapman- ”One, you don’t have to be super passionate about ag to be involved in FFA. Two, not to be scared.  I want to help students be successful and I am willing to work with them in whatever they participate in.”

Mr. Bronar- “Give it a shot, what do you have to lose?”
