                    Why Am I Here?
   The agricultural education program is a comprehensive year round
    program built on the three core areas of classroom/laboratory
    instruction, supervised agricultural experience programs and FFA
    student organization activities/opportunities. The program is
    designed for delivery through these three components as follows:
       Classroom/Laboratory Instruction – quality instruction in and about
        agriculture that utilizes a "learning by doing" philosophy.
       Supervised Agricultural Experience Programs – all students are
        expected to have an agriculturally related work-based learning
        experience while enrolled in agricultural education courses.
       FFA Student Organization activities/opportunities – FFA activities are an
        integral part of the agricultural education program that all agricultural
        education students should participate in if they are to fully benefit from
        their enrollment in the program.
