Supervised Agricultural Experiences a Vital Component of Agricultural Education and our Communities

AgEd Model copy
The three-circle model illustrated here is what makes agricultural education unique.

The summer issue of New Horizons, the publication for FFA members, is out and we couldn’t be more proud. Front and center is one of Nebraska’s own FFA members. Jared Knobbe’s story does a great job of modeling the impact a Supervised Agricultural Experience, or SAE, can have on agricultural education students. As the three-circle model of agricultural education illustrates on the right, students can incorporate the skills they’re learning in the classroom and the leadership qualities they’re developing in FFA into practice with their SAE. It also brings value to a community and encourages FFA members to find and pursue the career path that’s right for them. It turns out that with a little hard work, you can put yourself through college too!
