ATLANTA (February 27, 2015) | Sen. John Wilkinson (R- Toccoa) sponsored Senate Resolution 136, applauding the Future Farmers of America (FFA) on their activities and recognizing February 24, 2015 as FFA Day at the Capitol.
“What an honor it is to recognize these young future farmers for everything they have done,” said Sen. Wilkinson. “It fills me with pride to see Georgia’s young people have such a strong appreciation for the wellbeing of agriculture in our state, and I can’t wait to see what else they will do for the future of farming.”
The Georgia FFA association is the third largest state FFA association in the country with 37,684 current members. Agricultural education and the FFA guarantee its young professionals meet growing needs in the science, business and technology of agriculture and increase awareness of agricultural needs across the country.
The FFA motto, “Learning to do, Doing to learn, Earning to live, Living to serve,” encourages leadership, personal growth and career success among its members.
