Recently, Altha FFA members, Aubree Bay, Carlee Barfield, Josie Hall, Max Scott, and Graham Bruner, joined students from other agricultural education programs across the state of Florida, at the 2014 Agriculture on the Hill, at the State Capitol.
Students were addressed by Commissioner of Agriculture, Adam Putnam, and Chancellor of Workforce Education, Rod Duckworth, as well as other state representatives and senators. Altha FFA also met with Representative Marti Coley and Senator Greg Evers, to share the importance of agricultural education and FFA.
Agriculture is a $100 billion industry and is the second largest industry in our state, second only to tourism. Our agricultural education students are exposed to over 300 career options in agriculture by being a part of the National FFA Organization.
Altha School and FFA were represented extremely well at the capitol.
