Five members of the Forbes Road FFA recently received their first FFA jackets through a program sponsored by the Pennsylvania FFA Alumni Association and other local sponsors.

Eighth-graders Brad Swope and Jordan Schetrompf received their jackets at the FFA midwinter convention held in January at the Farm Show. A statewide funding campaign matched Brad and Jeff with Huntingdon County donors: Terry Grissinger and Southern Huntingdon School District.

Ninth-graders Erin Mc- Quait's, Shelby Brant's and Brittany Englert's jackets were donated by local Bedford County businessman Butch Otto of Eastern States Livestock systems.

"I'm glad to finally have an FFA jacket of my own," said Erin McQuait, who up to now wore her dad's jacket to FFA events. "We all appreciate the donations that helped us get our jackets."
