WASHINGTON – The Senate passed a resolution to honor the National Future Farmers of America (FFA) Organization with support from Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.), who joined Sen. Todd Young (R-Ind.) in introducing the resolution.
The resolution designates Feb. 19-26, 2022, as “National FFA Week.”
“Farmers are part of America’s economic and cultural backbone. The National FFA does excellent work equipping the next generation of American farmers, and I’m proud to join Sen. Young in recognizing their work,” said Kennedy.
“Hoosiers agree FFA plays a critical role in the development of students through agricultural education. The lessons, tools, and resources gained through the FFA program equip Indiana’s future leaders with the skills needed to succeed in a variety of fields, including agriculture. I’m glad to introduce this resolution establishing National FFA Week in support of the more than 11,600 FFA members in Indiana,” said Young.
The resolution recognizes the important role that the National FFA plays in developing students’ leadership and career skills through agricultural education. The resolution also celebrates 70 years of the National FFA Organization’s membership magazine, New Horizons.
More than 40 other senators also cosponsored the resolution.
