Seventy-five years ago, on October 21, Warfordsburg FFA received its official charter from the National FFA organization. Led by advisor Mr. Gienger, the chapter set out to build future leaders in agriculture. Now, 75 years later, the Warfordsburg FFA chapter lives on to continue its traditions and mission of developing premiere leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education. To celebrate the anniversary, numerous chapter events have been planned, the first being a celebratory parade float for the Fulton Fall Folk Festival parade. All current and alumni members of the chapter are encouraged to participate in the float with the theme being “Growing Future Leaders Since 1936.” Anniversary T-shirts are available through the school in celebration of the anniversary and participants in the parade are encouraged to purchase and wear the shirt during the parade.
