The website serves our community and our chapter’s local FFA members. This website was created by a sophomore at Le Grand High School and is currently an active member at Le Grand FFA. He still manages the website, as well as the chapter’s mobile application.
The roots of FFA originate from a time when boys were losing interest and leaving the farm. Walter S. Newman, who in September 1925 became the Virginia State Supervisor of Agricultural Education, sought a solution to the problem with Edmund C. MaGill, Harry W. Sanders and Henry C. Groseclose, staff members of the Virginia Polytechnic Institute Agricultural Education Department.
