Cumberland County Mayor Allen Foster has proclaimed Future Farmers of America (FFA) week:
Whereas, FFA and agricultural education provides a strong foundation for the youth of America and the future of food, fiber and natural resources systems; and
Whereas, FFA promotes premier leadership, personal growth and career success among its members; and
Whereas, agricultural education and FFA ensure a steady supply of young professionals to meet the growing needs in the science, business and technology of agriculture; and
Whereas, the FFA motto— “Learning to Do, Doing to Learn, Earning to Live, Living to Serve”—gives direction and purpose to these students who take an active role in succeeding in agricultural education; and
Whereas, FFA promotes citizenship, volunteerism, patriotism, and cooperation.
Therefore, I, Allen Foster, Mayor of Cumberland County, do hereby proclaim February 20-27, 2021 as FFA Week in Cumberland County and encourage parents and students alike to explore the possibilities of a future in FFA and agriculture.
