Congressman Lucas Celebrates National FFA Week
Last week, Congressman Frank Lucas joined Representatives Tracey Mann and Jimmy Panetta, co-chairs of the Congressional FFA Caucus, and Representatives GT Thompson and Jim Langevin, co-chairs of the Congressional Career and Technical Education Caucus, introducing a bipartisan resolution designating February 19-26 as National FFA Week.

“As an Oklahoma FFA alum, I know just how important National FFA is to our communities’ young adults and future ag leaders in Oklahoma. FFA chapters across Oklahoma are actively fostering the next generation of leaders by teaching the skills and instilling the sense of service that they need to succeed, which is why I'm excited to join my colleagues in recognizing this week as National FFA Week,” said Congressman Lucas. “Thank you to the teachers, advisors, and parents who help provide young Oklahomans with the tools they need to succeed in the classroom, on the farm, and beyond.”

In addition to designating National FFA Week, the resolution also recognizes the important role of the National FFA Organization in developing the next generation of leaders who will change the world and celebrates 70 years of the National FFA Organization’s membership magazine, now called New Horizons.
