From Generation to Generation: Future Farmers Visit Capitol Habitat
(Photo above) Led by two teachers who graduated from their high school a generation before, a group of students from Ernest Righetti High School in Santa Maria learn about CTA’s legislative advocacy on their behalf from CTA staff members (from l.)

The two teachers accompanying the students, including Miguel Guerra (center seated) and Guillermo Guerra (not pictured), were members of Future Farmers of America (FFA) and Righetti students before graduating, earning teaching credentials, and returning to the school as faculty.
(Photo below) Both of the teachers, (from r.) Guillermo and Miguel, were themselves students of CTA Executive Director Joe Nuñez, who taught agricultural studies at the high school for more than two decades. The CTA Executive Director also had a third Guerra brother as a student - he is also teaching at the school.
The students and the Guerras came to Sacramento to learn more about the “Capitol habitat,” to visit their lawmakers, and to participate in FFA competitions slated for Saturday at the University of California at Davis.
