[R58] Indiana House celebrates FFA page day

Entry Description

STATEHOUSE — State Representative Woody Burton (R-Whiteland) and fellow state representatives welcomed a group of House pages on Thursday as part of the Future Farmers of America (FFA) Page Day. Rep. Burton was joined by Autumn Peterson of Greenwood.

“I support the FFA mission to develop students’ potential for leadership, growth and career success through agricultural education, and am always glad when the organization takes an opportunity to join us at the Statehouse,” said Rep. Burton. “I have no doubt that in years to come, young people like Autumn will continue to rise to the forefront of their fields and advance the growth of the Hoosier agriculture industry.”

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 has a strong presence in Johnson County, and I am confident that their members will continue to lead the charge as we usher in a new era of agriculture here in Indiana,” said Rep. Burton.
