Assemblyman Gary Finch (R,C,I-Springport) was pleased to host a contingency of the Future Farmers of America (FFA) last week in his Albany office. Members of the Homer and Moravia groups spoke with the Assemblyman regarding their innovative curriculum.
“I was proud to host the delegation from the FFA this week. Their mission is incredibly important; over 20% of all Americans will work in the agriculture industry or related fields at some point during their career. Their balanced curriculum is an excellent template for all technical education.”
The FFA is on the vanguard of agricultural training. They bolster their industry training with technical reading and writing assignments, as well as agriscience courses that reinforce core science concepts.
