Greenhands excelling in FFA
FFA members must also learn the history of FFA and be able to recite the FFA motto and mission statement. By becoming a Greenhand, the students are taking the first step and will hopefully strive and continue to work on achieving further awards and advancements. This year, we had 30 FFA members earn their FFA Degree. They were awarded with their degree certificate and the bronze Greenhand pin.
During the event, a graduated member, Cally Bradshaw, spoke and encouraged the new members to continue working and achieving in the FFA. Cally had just earned her American FFA Degree at the National FFA Convention. Only 1 percent of FFA membership earn the American FFA Degree, and Cally was able to encourage the new members that they have the ability to earn this degree if they decide now that they want to.
During this event, we were also able to recognize the Creed Speaking Winners. The winners were Noah Jacobson and Audrey Hawkins. They will represent our chapter in the Area Contest in late February! Congratulations to all of our Greenhand Recipients!!
