South Johnston High School’s 2018-2019 FFA Officers recently invited the club’s officers from 1969 to return for a visit and celebrate the program’s 50-year history at the school.

The current students led the alumni on a tour of the school’s agricultural program. Following the tour, there was a meet and greet with time for fellowship and sharing memories.

The group of the 1st and the 50th leaders took a photo together to mark the history of the program in the school’s 2019 yearbook.

This year’s FFA advisers are Cindy Adams, Candace Parker, Kendall Parker, Lakean Byrd, John Ross Robertson, and Shelby Robertson.
