Change in Leadership for Montana’s FFA Program


On April, 20, 2012, the Northern Ag Network learned that Montana’s State FFA Advisor, Bill Jimmerson has announced his retirement. 

Jimmerson told Taylor Brown that he has given official notice to his supervisor, T.J. Eyer, at Montana’s Office of Public Instruction in Helena, that he will be stepping down effective August 1st.

Bill Jimmerson has served at the State FFA Advisor for the past seven years, operating out of the Ag Education center in Linfield Hall at the MSU College of Agriculture.  Prior to that he had a long and successful career as a high school Ag education instructor, most recently at Conrad High School.

In the seven years what Jimmerson has led the FFA program, the number of high school FFA Chapters in Montana has seen about a 15{fd15d42d1b024b97d6d50958be27cc8145b6addb99e015780abccf2984117bb0} increase, from 75 chapters back in 2005, to 86 Chapters this next year!

T. J. Eyer, Division Administrator for Career Technical and Adult Education for the Office of Public Instruction was very complimentary of the contribution that Bill Jimmerson has made over the past seven years, and said it will be hard to replace him.  The opening will be publicized immediately and a search will begin within the week, with the goal of having a new State FFA Advisor in place by July.

One of that position’s most important responsibilities is to work with Montana’s State FFA Officer team, which will be on the MSU campus for college classes starting in late August.”

From all the Northern Ag Network team, congratulations to Bill and Molly, on Bill’s pending retirement, and thanks for all you two have done for FFA in Montana!
