Chapman FFA Chapter
Dickinson County High School was one of the first five agriculture programs in the state of Kansas under the Smith Hughes Act in 1917. The school chartered a Kansas Future Farmers chapter in the early 1920's. In 1928 the Future Farmers of America was founded and the Chapman FFA Chapter was later chartered in 1930.
FFA and Ag Education has a rich history in the Chapman community. Dedicated community patrons have made the success of the Chapman FFA Chapter a possibility. Chapman FFA has been named Top Chapter in the State of Kansas in 1997, 1998, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 for a total of nine times. The chapter holds the record for most consecutive wins and most wins of the Triple Crown total.
At the 2018 National FFA Convention, the Chapman FFA Chapter was named Premier Chapter- Strengthening Agriculture. The Premier Chapter designation is only given to three outstanding chapters in the National each year.
Over the years our chapter has had many state championships and national competitors in Career Development Events. We also have students who have taken their SAE to the next level to be district, state, and national proficiency winners.
We are proud of our rich history in FFA and strive to continue this tradition in the Chapman community.
Today we have 148 members in our FFA chapter (over one-third of the high school student population).
