WE ARE THE RAIDERS AND WE DON'T
STOP UNTIL WE'RE PROUD
Happy National FFA Week! We hope you wore your camouflage to celebrate with us today! Did you know that FFA got its start in Virginia? That's right! In 1926, four professors at Virginia Tech created the Future Farmers of Virginia, which became the model for the National FFA Organization. AMS FFA would like to invite all students and staff to participate in FFA Week. Tomorrow will be FFA T-shirt day. Thursday is Boots and Blue Jeans Day, and Friday is Blue and Gold Day.
There will be crops judging at ACHS today until 5:00.
