St. Helena College & Career Academy FFA Chapter
Learning to Do, Doing to Learn, Earning to Live, Living to ServeWelcome Back FFA Members!
I'm Ahmad R. Robertson Sr., Agriscience Instructor and Assistant Football Coach at St. Helena College & Career Academy. I’m a student of St. Helena Central High former FFA Advisor’s Mr. Alcee Muse, Terry Guy and Mrs. Linda Chaney. I preceded Mr. Terry Guy in December of 2016 after 30 years of Service in the St. Helena Parish School District. I was enrolled in Agriculture Education and FFA during my years at S.H.C.H. 1996-2000. I played football for the St. Helena Central High Hawks during my highschool years. I wore the #56 during my lettering years at S.H.C.H. and excelled in the classroom and on the field. I graduated in the top six in my senior class of 2000 as the only male student. I received an atheletic and academic award from the United States Army at graduation. I was the SHCH C/O 2000 recepitant of USDA 1890 and Bayou Phase Scholarship program.
I graduated from the Southern University College of Agriculture Family & Consumer Sciences with a Bachelor of science in Urban Forestry Plant & Soil Sciences. Also I studied Horticulture vegetable production and Landscape management at Louisiana State University. I have experience in the Agriculture Industry as an LSU/SU Agriculture and Natural Resource Agent, and USDA Natural Resource Soil Conservationist. I’m dedicated to being a positive role model, mentor, and coach to the youth of St. Helena Parish. The students will be offered the same opportunities my FFA advisors gave me 20 years ago to pursue a career in agriculture sciences.
My hope is that your family will encourage participation in Ag/FFA this year. The classes offer diverse opportunities regardless of background or future plans. There is such a wide variety of topics to learn about, events to compete in, and skills to learn. Each student will gain recognition and awards for their participation. Students should consider choosing an Ag class as an opportunity to learn about new concepts, become a well-rounded individual and to develop leadership skills.
