Local high school agriculture teachers and their students are celebrating thanks to Gov. Jerry Brown’s inclusion of specific funding in this year’s budget. The fiscal year began July 1.

“The restoration of funding will preserve and maintain the high expectations and standards for quality agriculture programs throughout the state,” Galt High School agriculture teacher Cheryl Reece said. “It will ensure that programs maintain the three circle model of curriculum delivery and experiences of classroom, Supervised Agriculture Experience (projects) and the FFA (leadership). Locally, this will allow us to continue to provide the many opportunities to our students that aid in skill development, personal growth and academic achievement.”

    A great victory for FFA programs around the state--at least for this year. With the new funding formulas, this might be a battle the kids have to fight annually. But, the FFA kids I know are more than willing and able to meet that challenge! They are truly a shining example of perseverance and determination and I am so proud of all their hard work!!!
