Spencer, IA: (Apr. 03, 2014) – The Iowa FFA Association has set a new record in membership with 14,207 members in 219 high schools across Iowa. The new membership total is the highest in the 85 year history of the organization, and it surpassed the previous record of 14, 204 set during the 1977-78 school year.

Iowa FFA President Josh Earll, from Sibley, says the membership growth is the direct result of growing opportunities available to all students.
