Missouri FFA is proud to welcome back Jim Spencer Jr. to the Missouri Ag Education staff. Mr. Spencer served as a state vice president in 1985-1986 before a 25-year career as an FFA advisor and agriculture education instructor in Aurora from 1990-2016. The organization is excited to see what he brings to Missouri FFA and looks forward to continuing the work of growing leaders, building communities, and strengthening agriculture. Spencer can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With more than 200,000 students and their families in Missouri, Agriculture Education on the Move (AEOTM) continues to grow, helping bridge the gap between farming and the non-farming public. The program aims to increase an understanding of agriculture in third-grade classrooms across the state.
“AEOTM is a 10-week, interactive ag education program that focuses on bringing passionate educators into the classroom to share that important story of modern agriculture,” said Luella Gregory, AEOTM program director.
