Receives FFA Jacket At Convention

On Monday, January 10, McConnellsburg FFA member Chris Downin recieved his FFA jacket at the midwinter convention at the Pennsylvania Farm Show.

Chris is the second student from the McConnellsburg Chapter to receive his jacket by writing an essay on, “What the FFA jacket means to you!” The FFA jacket program has been in effect for five years. It is sponsored by the FFA Alumni Association and funded by private donations across the state.

Chris expressed his gratitude to his jacket sponsor, Pomona Grange of Centre County, by sending them a thank-you note.
