Woodlawn School pitched as FFA/Ag center

HILLSVILLE – A proposal for the future use of Woodlawn School was presented to the Carroll County Industrial Development Authority (IDA) at a recent meeting.

John Carpenter, an FFA teacher at the Carroll County Intermediate School, presented a proposal to turn the school into the Smith Hughes FFA/Agriculture Center.

Carpenter explained that the first vocational education program, located at Woodlawn, was funded by the Smith Hughes Agriculture Education Act in 1917. This led to the Future Farmers of Virginia and then to Future Farmers of America in 1928.
