State FFA leaves Education Department for ag agency

Indiana FFA is moving its offices from the Indiana Department of Education to the State Department of Agriculture.

Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman announced the change Wednesday at the Indiana State FFA Convention in West Lafayette. She says that
beginning this summer, the Department of Agriculture will house Indiana FFA's executive offices. Skillman is Indiana's
Secretary of Agriculture.

Skillman says the move is designed to keep FFA in sync with what's going on in the Department of Agriculture.

FFA had been housed at the Department of Education. The agricultural curriculum and education aspects of FFA will continue
to be housed there, but teachers now will also have a direct link to state Department of Agriculture.
