Shelby Atwood

I am a Florence, AL native. I graduated from Florence High School in 2016. After six years in the local agricultural education program, I developed a strong passion for agriculture and the FFA. From this, I pursued a degree in Agricultural Education from Auburn University. In 2019, I graduated and returned to Florence to begin my teaching career. In 2021, I received a Master's degree in Agricultural Education and Communications. 

My goal as an agricultural educator is to instill a passion for agriculture and the FFA in my students just as my AG teacher did for me.

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.
