At Clinton High School, FFA is an intercurricular student organization for those interested in agriculture and leadership. It is one of three components of agricultural education. The official name of the organization is National FFA Organization and the letters “FFA” stand for Future Farmers of America. These letters are a part of the history and the heritage that will never change. But FFA is not just for students who want to be production farmers; FFA also welcomes members who aspire to careers as teachers, doctors, scientists, business owners and more. For this reason, the name of the organization was updated in 1988 after a vote of national convention delegates to reflect the growing diversity and new opportunities in the industry of agriculture. Today, the National FFA Organization remains committed to the individual student, providing a path to achievement in premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. FFA members are the Future Biologists, Future Chemists, Future Veterinarians, Future Engineers and Future Entrepreneurs of America, too.
