Mr. Matthew Ball

Agricultural Education has been a part of my life from the day I was born.  My father was my Agricultural Education teacher and FFA advisor throughout middle and high school.  After completing high school, I attended Alabama A&M University, where I completed my Bachelor's of Science degree in Agriscience Education.  In 2005, I began my career by opening the Agriscience Education program for the Florence Freshman Center and Florence Middle School.  Shortly after my teaching career began, I obtained a Master’s of Science and Educational Specialist Degree in Agriscience Education from Auburn University.  I am now starting my 17th year of teaching Agricultural Education at Florence High School and Florence Freshman Center and look forward to the continued growth and success of our program.

Agricultural Education Student Organization

  • FFA is a dynamic youth organization that changes lives and prepares members for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.

    FFA develops members’ potential and helps them discover their talent through hands-on experiences, which give members the tools to achieve real-world success.

    Members are future chemists, veterinarians, government officials, entrepreneurs, bankers, international business leaders, teachers and premier professionals in many career fields. FFA is an intracurricular student organization for those interested in agriculture and leadership. It is one of the three components of agricultural education.

    The official name of the organization is the National FFA Organization. The letters “FFA” stand for Future Farmers of America. These letters are a part of our history and our heritage that will never change.
