John Kunney


Mr. John Kunney began his teaching career in Barrow County in 1958. He then taught in Tattnall County for 35 years until 1996. During this time, many changes occurred in the Agricultural Education program, including the merging of the NFA and the FFA. Mr. Kunney provided leadership for a smooth transition.

Under his guidance, many students received honors for excellence in both NFA and FFA competitions. Mr. Kunney had the privilege of having both a national proficiency winner and a Star Farmer of America. His instructional program was developed to meet the needs of all the students in his classes. Mr. Kunney had a special ability to make students want to do their very best. Even today, students who have graduated often seek his advice.

A state licensed electrical contractor himself, Mr. Kunney had 12 district winners in EMC electrification competitions. His chapter was a 15-time district winner in the Georgia Power electrification contest and a 7-time state winner. Other accomplishments of his students include 72 winners in district and state livestock shows.

Mr. Kunney organized the Tattnall County Young Farmer Chapter to provide an educational program for the farmers in his county. He served as advisor for both the FFA and Young Farmer programs for a number of years. In the later years of his career, he became the full-time advisor of the Young Farmer chapter and guided them to the state chapter award and the state farm family award. With his leadership, the chapter and community members raised over $70,000 to fund the construction of a top quality livestock pavilion for the community. The Young Farmers and school administration honored Mr. Kunney by naming the livestock pavilion in his honor.

Mr. Kunney holds both the Honorary State and American FFA Degrees. He is also an honorary member of the Tattnall County Young Farmers. Mr. Kunney has truly lived up to the advisor's part of the opening ceremony during his teaching career.
