FFA Parent Letter
Dear Parents/Guardians and FFA Members,
Your child(ren) has shown an interest and commitment to becoming a member of the Juniata FFA Chapter. While some people believe that you have to live on a farm to be in FFA, this is no longer true. FFA is the student organization that at one time was known as “Future Farmers of America,” however in 1988 it was changed to the “National FFA Organization.” This was done to accommodate the changing face and diversity of today’s agriculture. Whereas agricultural production in farming crops and livestock was the focal point for projects, new projects like turf grass management, forestry, ag sales, floriculture/landscaping, and many more are becoming accepted into FFA activities.
The 2014-2015 officers have an exciting year planned for the members of the Juniata FFA Chapter. We have a great officer team and we are all very excited to spread the word about FFA and show our achievements. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments at the school 717-436-2193 or email me at email@example.com.

Juniata High School Agriculture Teacher
