WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) announced today the passage of S.Res. 77 designating Saturday through Feb. 23, 2019 as National FFA Week. Sen. Kennedy is a cosponsor of the resolution.
The National FFA Organization is a youth organization that prepares its members for leadership roles and careers in agriculture.
“The FFA has a long history of equipping young people to handle the future of agriculture,” said Sen. Kennedy. “Our Louisiana members of the FFA are passionate, smart and ready to tackle the agriculture industry. It’s an honor to celebrate their accomplishments and hard work.”
“With more than 11,000 FFA members in Indiana, it’s important to Hoosiers that we recognize the significant work the FFA does preparing our students to become leaders in the agriculture field and in their communities. This is a mission we should all support, and I’m glad that my Senate colleagues agree,” said Senator Young.
“The Delaware FFA and the National FFA Organization play an important role in strengthening our communities and preparing the next generation of leaders to meet agricultural challenges, and I’m proud to join them in celebrating National FFA Week by passing this bipartisan resolution,” said Senator Coons.
