National FFA CEO joins National Work Readiness Council

The CEO of National FFA has been appointed to the National Work Readiness Council with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Scott Stump tells Brownfield the goal is to address skill gaps identified in young people entering the workforce.

“FFA has a premier platform for developing those work ready skills in students and, you know, we have so many students that are growing as young entrepreneurs.”  He says, “Those are the skills that we’re hoping to share with them.”

He says it should also help FFA to reach even more students, which bodes well for the future of the agriculture industry.

“To ensure the workforce is equipped in America, that we have enough individuals with knowledge and abilities to meet the demands of an ever changing economy.”  He says, “And you know there’s no better time than right now for FFA and agriculture education to be represented at that table because our industry needs that talent.”

Stump brings decades of experience in education, including as a teacher, advisor, and in the U.S. Department of Education, to his new position on the Council.
