Liberty County High School Agriculture Program/FFA Chapter recently earned the title of being Industry Certified in the area of Horticulture.
Agriculture is Georgia’s largest industry. A strong and diverse agricultural sector will continue to be important to the economic well being of Georgians in future years. Based on the importance of the agriculture industry, and especially with rapid growth of jobs in many areas such as food processing, food service, the environment and ornamental horticulture, there is a corresponding need for more workers trained in all areas of agriculture.
Therefore, it is important for educational institutions to provide high quality educational programs in agriculture. Recognizing this need, the Georgia professional agriculture organizations and the Georgia Department of Education initiated an Agriculture Education certification program designed to recognize high school Agriculture Education programs that meet industry standards.
Congratulations to Mrs. Jeci Crane-Bohannon, Agriculture instructor/FFA Advisor, Liberty County High School Agriculture Program/FFA Chapter, and the Liberty County School System for working for more than a year to become industry certified. This program will help promote agriculture and train agriculture students to go immediately into the workforce.
This program is proudly sponsored by the Georgia Farm Bureau.
