One of our responsibilities as agriculture
teachers is to insure that our profession has a bright future. One way
that we all can help in this effort is to encourage students to consider
a career in agricultural education.
Please take the time to encourage a
student to participate in the Teach Agriculture Recruitment Day. This event
will be held on October 31st at the three major institutions for
agricultural education teacher training (UGA-Athens, UGA-Tifton, &
Ft. Valley State).
If you know of a student (and parents)
that would benefit from this exposure to the possibility of majoring in
agricultural education, please have them contact Dr. Dennis Sheppard ([log in to unmask])
or Mr. Ben Lastly ([log in to unmask]) for more details.
If each Ag. Teacher could encourage
one student to pursue a career teaching agriculture, the future of our
program would be secure!
Thank You for making a positive difference
in agricultural education!
