Live Like Johnny Partnership with Kubota
Here at Lansdowne-Moody, we have a special appreciation for agriculture. Whenever there is an opportunity to help foster the same spirit for agriculture in the youth we make sure to engage. Through a partnership with Kubota and Live Like Johnny Organization, we will provide an official Future Farmers of America (FFA) jacket to a young lady from Caesar E. Chavez High School free of charge for reciting the FFA creed.
What Is FFA All About At HISD?
The FFA is a national youth organization that helps middle school and high school students develop their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agriculture education. The Houston FFA chapter began as a rural club and slowly but surely worked its way to the largest chapter in Texas with a total of 125 students from A&M Kingsville, Tarleton, Ranger, San Angelo, Sam Houston, Houston Vet Tech Institute, A&M, and UH Clearlake. FFA provides students with opportunities to study agriculture pursuits they may not have had otherwise.
What The FFA Jacket Represents
The FFA jacket is more than any ordinary blue corduroy jacket. It represents hard work, dedication, friendship, and love. When students attend events their jacket will come equipped with the FFA symbol, state, chapter name, and the student’s name. This provides students with a sense of pride knowing that they are representing something greater than themselves at contests and events. We are happy to help carry on the FFA tradition by providing students with a jacket that represents endearing values members will use for the rest of their life.
