Lynn Camp’s chapter of Future Farmers of America had a special guest visitor during their February 17 meeting.
Superintendent Jeremy Ledford was in attendance to sign a proclamation declaring that the Knox County Public Schools would participate in and recognize National FFA Week beginning February 19 and ending on February 26, 2022.
The proclamation signing was conducted as part of the chapter’s monthly meeting. Prior to the proclamation signing, chapter officers reviewed minutes from past meetings, received a report from the treasurer, and recognized those members celebrating a birthday.
The proclamation signed by Ledford reads:

Whereas, FFA promotes premier leadership, personal growth and
career success among its members; and

of young professionals to meet the growing needs in the science,
business and technology of agriculture; and

these students who take an active role in succeeding in
agricultural education; and
Whereas, FFA promotes citizenship, volunteerism, patriotism and
Therefore, I do hereby designate the week of Feb. 19-26, 2022, as
