Welcome to Ag Class!
Parents and students I welcome you to Agriculture at RCHS! So far this year has been so successful. FFA has been able to participate in so many events for the first time. The most important of these events is attending the 84th National FFA Convention. Students have also been successful in many Career Development Events, like Job Interview, Extemporaneous Public Speaking, Floral Design Floriculture, and FFA Quiz. We have many more events and competitions planned for this school year so make sure to check the page often for the latest updates. Please don't hesitate to call me or e-mail me if you have any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org or 706-782-4526 ex 2107
