New FFA Chapter Coming to Piedmont
Blue and gold corduroy jackets will soon be hitting city streets with the addition of a new Agriculture Education program and FFA chapter joining Piedmont Public Schools.

In the fall of 2021, school administration surveyed Piedmont’s middle and high school students to discover their interest in various courses. One of the questions asked was if they’d like to be a student in an agriculture education program, and the response was an overwhelming “yes,” Piedmont Public Schools Superintendent Dr. James White said.

At the state-level, CareerTech Program Specialist Kurt Murray received notice from White that interest in an agriculture education program in the Piedmont district was strong, and he’s been working with school administration to get the ball rolling.

“Piedmont Public Schools’ student survey showed strong interest and support. It was north of 100-125 students surveyed that said they wanted to be in an agriculture education program,” Murray said. “Piedmont’s superintendent, Dr. White previously came from a school that had Ag Ed and he knows the value of the program.

’We all agree there is a lot of potential for this to grow pretty quickly in Piedmont,” he said.
