[r22] Indiana House celebrates FFA page day
Start Date: 2/27/2014Start Time: 5:30 PM
Entry Description
State Representative Rebecca Kubacki (R-Syracuse) and fellow state representatives welcomed a group of House pages on Thursday as part of the Future Farmers of America (FFA) Page Day. 

“Seeing all these students here at the Statehouse taking an interest in their government is a really exciting event to be a part of,” said Rep. Kubacki. “The FFA is a great organization to be a part of and helps to prepare students for their future endeavors in farming practices and other agricultural-related fields.” 

According to the organization’s website, FFA was founded more than 80 years ago to educate young people about the business, science and art of farming. Over time, the organization has risen to the challenge of feeding a growing population, and expanded its mission to encompass related fields, including biology, chemistry, veterinary medicine, engineering and entrepreneurship. Today, there are nearly 580,000 FFA members in 7,570 chapters in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The Indiana chapter, in particular, has 9,600 members.

“FFA not only helps students to understand the agricultural field, but instructs on the leadership and education that goes into running a business and becoming a professional individual. I am glad that I was able to talk with these students as they learn more about state government and the many opportunities available to help them succeed and reach their full potential,” said Rep. Kubacki.
