I created “The Profitable SAE Student Workbook” to help FFA Advisors teach marketing methods to their students and to help FFA Students succeed in their entrepreneurship SAE’s. I hope you find this product as beneficial as all of the interviews I conducted to create it were to me!
OFI 169: Grandpa’s Power Wagon And $1,000 | FFA SAE Edition | Lane Swan | Webberville High School FFA
Introducing Lane Swan!
Lane Swan must be a smooth talker (or writer). He was able to procure a $1,000 SAE grant, donated by Honda Motors, to fix up a Dodge! Lane’s grandfather donated his old Dodge Power Wagon to Lane for an SAE project. Lane is doing everything: rebuilding the engine, fixing the interior and painting the pickup.
What I found so interesting about Lane’s project is a decision that he has to make. He is trying (or at least was trying) to decide what color to paint the pickup. He was choosing between Army green or FFA colors with an FFA emblem. I am like him. I like both! The truck is supposed to be ready by December of 2016. So, I am looking forward to finding out what he decided.

FFA LINKS: National FFA Organization Supervised Agricultural Experiences (SAE’s) Support FFA Donate to FFA – One way that FFA students are able to start small businesses is through an FFA grant of $1,000. In 2014, 141 FFA students received these grants. With your donations, more students can get this head start – pay it forward. REASONS TO DONATE TO FFA:
- Only 2% of Americans grow and raise most of the food and livestock consumed by the other 98% as well as the rest of the world. FFA is providing the needed education, training and resources to Americans that will carry that torch forward and insure that America continues to have inexpensive, quality food.
- Rural Communities will rely on entrepreneurship in the future for population growth and job creation. The FFA is a major catalyst to that entrepreneurial growth.
- Farmers, ranchers and those working in agriculture give the rest of America incredible amounts of freedom because the search for food is as simple as going to the grocery store:
“Because American farmers are able to provide for so many of us, they give more and more of us the freedom to pursue goals and livelihoods beyond growing the food we need to survive.”
U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack
