The Importance of the Hubbard FFA Continues Today

Back in 1963 – a throwback to the FFA and how important this organization continues to be in the lives of the students here in Hubbard and throughout the country. Where would the world be with the farmers?

Did you know – The National FFA Organization, originally called the Future Farmers of America, was founded in 1928 as a national organization for boys in rural, farming communities. Its original purpose, the education of youth in agricultural fields of study, is still recognized through its current programs. Today, the mission of the National FFA Organization is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education. Through educational programs the FFA teaches students how to become active in their communities and successful in their occupation. FFA membership includes junior high, high school, and college students and totals approximately 450,000. We are thankful that the Hubbard FFA program continues today.
