FFA - The Future
Tuesday, 02 March 2010

March 2--  On February 25, members of the Toombs County FFA Chapter visited the Toombs County Middle School. Advisor Mark Montfort, Tyler Corley, Chapter Secretary, Mitch Williamson, Chapter Sentinel, Brittany Gay, Chapter Vice President, and Emily Hitchcock, Chapter member, went to discuss the FFA and Agriculture classes. They ventured to several of the classrooms and told the students about different opportunities that will be offered in the upcoming high school careers.



FFA Members Brittany Gay, Emily Hitchcock, Tyler Corley, and Mitch Williamson present agriculture opportunities available at Toombs County High School to upcoming 9th graders.


            The FFA members discussed the importance of math and science and how it directly relates to FFA and agriculture. They also discussed different Career Development Events and jobs that pertain to agriculture and a variety of interest. The members shared their stories of how FFA and agriculture classes have helped them throughout their high school careers; and also helped jump start their lives.

            Questions were also asked in each class. Answers were rewarded to students with a free FFA t-shirt. A few of the questions were: “What does FFA stand for?” which is the National FFA Organization; and also “What is the official state vegetable for the state of Georgia?” which is the Vidalia Onion. Students did a great job participating and listening to the presentations.

            A special thanks goes to Mrs. Clark and Mrs. Sears, whom are the principals of the two schools, and also to the teachers who allowed the FFA members to visit their classes.

            FFA is a national organization of 449,000 members preparing for leadership and careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture. FFA is an integral part of the agricultural education program in public schools. The FFA mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
