National Future Farmers of America (FFA)
The National Future Farmers of America (FFA) Organization is dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
Learning to Do, Doing to Learn, Earning to Live, Living to Serve.
Founded in 1928, the Future Farmers of America brought together students, teachers and agribusiness to solidify support for agricultural education. In Kansas City’s Baltimore Hotel, 33 young farmboys charted a course for the future. They could not have foreseen how the organization would grow and thrive.
Since 1928, millions of agriculture students – no one knows exactly how many – have donned the official FFA jacket and championed the FFA creed. FFA has opened its doors and its arms to minorities and women, ensuring that all students could reap the benefits of agricultural education.
The FFA motto gives members twelve short words to live by as they experience the opportunities in the organization.
National Junior Honor Society (NJHS)
The purpose of this organization shall be to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, to develop character, and to encourage good citizenship in the students of secondary schools.
Established in 1929, the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle school students. More than just an honor roll, NJHS serve to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character and Citizenship. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since it’s beginning in 1929.
Today, the National FFA Organization now claims 495,046 members in 7,242 chapters. The National FFA Organization remains committed to the individual student, providing a path to achievement in premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. Now, the organization is expanding the nation’s view of “traditional” agriculture and finding new ways to infuse agriculture into the classroom.

McLaughlin's Mad Scientist Club
The MMS Mad Scientist Club is the place for students who are interested in science to learn about all scopes of science from medicine to chemistry to engineering to the environment. We discuss how to use this conceptual basis for applications in the real world.
MAC - "McLaughlin Aviation Club"
Members of the McLaughlin Aviation Club (MAC), with guidance from adult volunteers and staff, learn to build and fly recreational multirotor drones and promote an understanding of the concepts, uses, and practices of drones. The members meet weekly to study current regulations, practice flight techniques, and perfect manipulation of the controls. The club is fully sanctioned by the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA). The mission of the competition is to “encourage students to explore the drone phenomenon through teamwork, competition, and success through STEM.” The club completely relies on the funding by sponsors, our district and student fundraising opportunities. Meetings (Engineering Labs) will be held on Thursdays after school (4:15pm-5:30pm) and on some Saturdays (9:00am-11:00am).
