Discussions are underway to begin an enhanced agriculture education program and FFA chapter in Oswego County.
Oswego County Farm Bureau President Nancy Weber and state FFA Association President Amanda Rhodes met recently with the Oswego County Board of Cooperative Educational Services to discuss the issue.
"Clearly the FFA has a place in the educational systems of our county schools,” said Oswego County BOCES Superintendent Christopher Todd. “With a lack of district led programs, it appears as though an opportunity has presented itself to bring this programming to our students.”
Oswego County BOCES will move ahead to review beginning an enhanced agricultural program and a FFA chapter.
