Students in the Ranch and Land Management program are working to form a Collegiate FFA Chapter at Panola College. An information meeting is scheduled for 12 noon, Tuesday, Oct. 31 in the Murphy-Payne Community Room of the M.P. Baker Library.

Jody Harris, agriculture instructor and director of student activities, will serve as faculty sponsor for the chapter. Collegiate FFA allows students who were FFA members in high school to continue their membership and participate in FFA at the college level. The club would provide opportunities to connect with local industry leaders, allow students to earn their American FFA Degree, help recruit new ag majors to the College, volunteer to help with local ag/FFA events, and go on trips to conventions and local industry tours.

“Many students have expressed an interest in starting an ag club,” Harris said. “Because the interest is so high, we are starting the Collegiate FFA Chapter. We invite any interested students, especially former high school FFA members, to join us Tuesday at the meeting. We’re serving free pizza while we meet to discuss this new club.”

For more information, contact Harris at [email protected]
