Washington, DC — U.S. Congressman Diane Black (R-TN) met with Coffee County Future Farmers of America (FFA) President, Derek Anderson, of Manchester, this week in her Washington D.C. office. Anderson, 17, is a student at Coffee County Central High School and was visiting Washington D.C. to attend the National FFA Organization’s annual Washington Leadership Conference. Congressman Black released the following statement about their visit:

“It is always a special privilege for me to welcome students from Tennessee’s 6th District to Washington. In Tennessee, we have some 91,000 farms and agriculture is a $20 billion industry each year, so it is deeply important that our students and young adults have an appreciation for how agriculture impacts our state. I am proud of Derek for his leadership to raise awareness of this issue as president of the Coffee County FFA,” said Congressman Diane Black.
