PHOTOS: Young Meets with FFA Student Officers from Jay County, Indiana

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) met with Future Farmers of America (FFA) student officers from Jay County who are participating in the National FFA Organization’s Washington Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C.

“The National FFA Organization plays a large role in our state with over 12,000 high school members. I’m proud of our FFA members, and enjoyed meeting these bright young people from Jay County who represent the organization’s mission of agricultural success, citizenship, and community service,” said Senator Young.

In February, Senator Young introduced the National FFA Organization’s Federal Charter Amendments Act to update and modernize their charter. The bipartisan legislation would reflect emerging opportunities in agriculture education and ensure students have access to the hands-on leadership and career-training that the FFA provides.
