We are supporting The Monroe Technology Center FFA T-Shirt campaign. Buy and wear your shirt to show your support:
The Monroe Technology Center FFA is proud to be the only FFA representing Loudoun’s students in agriculture curriculums such as Biotechnology, Environmental Plant Science and Veterinary Science.
The National FFA Organization was organized as the “Future Farmers of America” in 1928 in Kansas City, MO. In 1988, the official organization name was changed to The National FFA Organization to reflect the broadening field of agriculture, which today encompasses more than 300 careers in everything from agriscience to biotechnology to turf grass management. In 1950, Congress granted FFA a federal charter, making it an integral, intracurricular part of public agricultural instruction under the National Vocational Education Acts. Two of the FFA top three executives are employed by the U.S. Department of Education. FFA operates on local, state and national levels. Student members belong to chapters organized at the local school level. Agricultural education instructors serve as chapter advisors. Chapters are organized under state associations headed by an advisor and executive secretary, often employees of the state department of education. States conduct programs and host annual conventions.
