In mid- December, four McConnellsburg FFA members were awarded their FFA Area degrees, in Altoona. The Area Degree is an award for FFA members in the Blair, Bedford, Fulton area. Shawn Keebaugh, Kirsten Mellott, Kristin Hawbaker and Tyler Long completed two SAE books through the FFA, and are one short year away from receiving their Keystone degrees.

The students attended a dinner and a ceremony, where they received the award, and a pin to go on their jackets. Along with these four students were more than 50 other FFA members from surrounding schools who were also receiving the degree.

The students had a great time and can’t wait to earn their next award.
