Max Armstrong continues the celebration of FFA Week with a look at the history of a key symbol of the group – that corduroy jacket

Max Armstrong considers a hallmark of FFA membership, that corduroy jacket, which has become a symbol for this hard-working youth organization. Max shares the rich history of the jacket, which goes back to the early 1930s. As with many innovations in the group, it started with one chapter as Max explains.
