Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, my name is John Burgess and I was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. I come from an agricultural back ground being taught at a young age what hard work is all about. Upon graduation from Joshua High School I worked inte horse ranching industry for 23 years. In 2010 I decided to go back to college and finish my education I attended Tarleton State University where I earned a bachelors degree as an ag teacher with a minor in animal science. After graduating in the fall of 2012 I continued my education and earned a Masters degree in Agriculture with an emphasis in animal science. Upon graduating I went to work for Sanderson Farms managing broiler houses for a school year. I missed working with the youth of Texas and came back to teaching. I am one of two advisors to the Maypearl FFA. My advisor duties include Ag Mechanics Project showteams, Swine Projects, Training Various LDE and CDE teams and Student Awards.
If there is anything I can do to help you please email me or come by the ag building and see me. I look forward to getting to know everyone and working to make Maypearl FFA one of the best Chapters in the State
