Fuel Up for Virginia FFA with Rockingham Petroleum      


Headline: Rockingham Petroleum “Fuels Up” for Virginia FFA


May 3, 2023: Rockingham Petroleum Cooperative has joined forces with the Virginia FFA Foundation to help support their efforts in providing opportunities for leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.

Beginning in January of this year, Rockingham Petroleum customers can request the Virginia FFA Petroleum truck to fill their residential tanks.  Five cents per gallon on the FFA logo truck will be donated to Virginia FFA. This donation comes at no extra expense to the consumer but is a great way for Rockingham Petroleum to support the young men and women involved in Virginia FFA. “FFA had a significant impact on my life and leadership style. It’s the organization where I had the opportunity to learn what it truly means to serve others in a leadership position,” says Josh Stephens, General Manager of Rockingham Petroleum Cooperative.

Customers in Rockingham Petroleum’s service area can call 540-434-4321 and request the FFA truck to “Fuel Up for FFA.”  

The Virginia FFA Foundation cultivates partnerships that support the FFA vision to grow leaders, build communities, and strengthen agriculture. Virginia FFA initiatives impact over 13,000 FFA members in over 225 FFA chapters and nearly 40,000 agricultural education students across the Commonwealth.  “Working with Josh on this project really brings our mission to light.  Being a product of FFA himself, he knows how this partnership can impact students.  It’s a full-circle moment to have an alumni come to you and say they want to really move the needle for the next generation of members.” says Jennifer Armstrong, Executive Director of Virginia FFA Foundation.  “We are experiencing tremendous growth in the Foundation, and the exposure this propane truck gives us will hopefully spark more programs like it. We’re excited to see where this goes.  It proves that even five cents at a time, we can make a big difference for these young leaders,” says Virginia FFA Foundation Board Chairman Adam Ford.

About Rockingham Petroleum:  Rockingham Petroleum Cooperative was formed in 1942 and serves approximately 1600 member-owners and numerous commercial and residential clients with refined fuels and propane in Rockingham, Shenandoah, and Page counties.
