What is the FFA?Image result for ffa

FFA is a dynamic youth organization within agricultural education that changes lives and prepares students for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success.  FFA was created in 1928 as the Future Farmers of America; the name was changed in 1988 to the National FFA Organization to represent the growing diversity of agriculture.  Today, nearly one half-million student members are engaged in a wide range of agricultural education activities, leading to over 300 career opportunities in the agriculture sciences, food, fiber and natural resources industries.  Student success remains the primary mission of FFA.


The Three Circle Model


The Greenon Agriculture Department is founded on the three-circle model of agricultural education.  The three circles include classroom instruction, Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) “Projects”, and FFA.

All three circles are an important component of student success and diversity of experiences available to all agriculture students.
