CATA Hall of Fame

For 98 years the California Agricultural Teachers’ Association has been dedicated to the service of vocational agriculture, agriculture education, and the FFA members of this great state. In 2000, an idea was born that would result in the recognition of those who have excelled in such service. Ken Harris, past CATA Executive Director and past San Joaquin Regional Supervisor, was the driving force in organizing the efforts resulting in what we now call the CATA Hall of Fame.

The CATA is responsible for overseeing the selection and presentation of the Hall of Fame members. The policies and rules concerning the Hall of Fame can be found in the CATA Leadership Handbook. Inductees are nominated by their peers then selected by a committee comprised of past CATA presidents as well as special invitees.
