Weiler, Warren G.; Woodin, Ralph J.
The 50-year history of the Ohio Vocational Agriculture Teachers Association (OVATA) was prepared for the purpose of enabling members and others to gain a better understanding of the history, growth, and development of the OVATA, and to identify objectives, activities, and accomplishments of the organization. The history is organized into three divisions: a descriptive history of the Ohio Vocational Agriculture Teachers Association, chronological activities of OVATA, and the Women's Auxiliary. The narrative discusses membership activities, State policies for vocational education in agriculture, program planning, providing assistance for teachrs, fostering public understanding, and the development of the FFA (Future Farmers of America) and YFA (Young Farmers Association). An appendix includes information about the executive committee, former presidents, and award recipients. The creed and constitution of the organization are also appended. (Author/NJ)
