FFA Chapter Members Attend Legislative Breakfast
DISTRICT – Members of the Future Farmers of America (FFA) school clubs of Enterprise Attendance Center, Loyd Star Attendance Center and West Lincoln Attendance Center recently attended the Mississippi Legislative Breakfast at the Jackson Convention Center in Jackson, Mississippi with over 600 other students from across the state. As part of National FFA Week (Feb 16th-23rd, 2013), members traveled to the capital city to thank legislators and industries for supporting FFA and agricultural education.
The Mississippi Legislative Breakfast is an annual event where legislators from all over the state gather for breakfast and discuss hot topics currently on the agenda in the Mississippi House and Senate. The National FFA Organization (formerly Future Farmers of America) envisions a future in which all agricultural education students will discover their passion in life and build on that insight to chart the course for their educations, career and personal future (FFA web site).
