Current Work at Locust Fork High School
The Locust Fork FFA will be starting a new project at our school that will include activities that are geared toward the beautification of our campus. Check back for details as that plan is in the process of being completed now.
Our chapter will be looking to help families in need during the holidays. If you are aware of a family that could use some help, please contact us as soon as possible.
We are preparing for District Competitions which will take place around the first day of May (the exact date will be determined soon). We will compete in several events. Our first step in that direction is to complete local competitions to see who gets to go to District.
Our FFA chapter is always on the lookout for new ways to serve our community. If you have ideas or suggestions for public service projects, please contact one of the chapter officers.

History of FFA Districts in Alabama
FFA districts in Alabama date back to 1934, when several chapters organized themselves into three districts, simply called districts 1, 2, and 3. Although membership in districts was voluntary, most chapters chose to affiliate themselves with a district to take advantage of the member opportunities available at that level. By 1936, Alabama had twenty-two districts that included 114 of the state’s 138 FFA chapters. Most of these districts were named for a nearby city, although a few were named for a county or geographic location. Some of these districts were Andalusia, DeKalb County, Gadsden, East Alabama, Montgomery, and Muscle Shoals.
The number and size of districts has varied a great deal over the years, as districts often were reorganized every few years based upon membership trends and the number of state staff members. In the 1950s and early 1960s, Alabama was divided into the Northeast, Northwest, Central, Southeast, and Southwest districts. In the mid 1960s, the state was reorganized into the North, North Central, South, and South Central districts. Several years later, Alabama had six districts: North, Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, East Central, and West Central. The Southwest Central district was organized in the mid 1970s, bringing the total number of districts to seven. In 1991, Alabama was reorganized into four districts, North, Central, Southeast, and Southwest. The Southeast and Southwest districts were consolidated into the South district in 2000. Today, the district organization continues to be a vital component of the Alabama FFA, as it provides opportunities for leadership and friendly competition among chapters.
