Mission OF THE FFA
The National Future Farmers of America Organization develops competent and assertive agricultural leadership in America’s youth and strives to increase awareness of the global and technological importance of agriculture and its contribution to our well-being. We are privileged to be a part of the agriculture industry here in the State of California where according to the latest statistics compiled by the California Department of Food and Agriculture, the state produces almost half of all the fruits, nuts and vegetables grown in the country, as well as a whopping share of the livestock and dairy.
The Apple Valley FFA Chapter is just one of 320 FFA chapters across the state of California. In 1967 Apple Valley High School received its charter from the California Association of Future Farmers of America (FFA) a national organization. Currently, our program has about 260 members in either our agriculture classes or the welding program.
This Program Has Been Taught By The Amazing Mr. Duane Penfold Who Also Went Through Apple Valley FFA Program. Mr. Penfold Has Been The Advisor For Over 40 Years And Continues To Share His Passion With High School Students. He Has Inspired Many Students Over The Years To Join The Agriculture Industry In Many Different Fields. His Son, Casey Penfold, The Second Advisor For The Chapter Runs The Successful Welding Program Here At AVHS.
