Starting off in January, three chapter members received great honors during the FFA Mid Winter Convention held during the annual Farm Show. Matthew Swadley and Steven White were both presented with their very own official FFA jackets through the Freshmen Jacket Scholarship. They were chosen to receive their jackets after completing applications and writing essays describing what the FFA jacket means to them. Along with these two boys, Crystal Appel was also honored the awardin of her Keystone Degree. The Keystone Degree is the highest degree bestowed upon a member through the state and shows great effort and achievement within the FFA.

A month following the Farm Show, FFA students were once again busy planning and participating in the chapter’s annual Butcher Day. Throughout the day, they participated in all parts of butchering from skinning to packaging meats. The students proudly made sausage, scrapple, cracklin’ and lard. The day began around 8 a.m. and concluded around 4 p.m. after a long and cold day’s work. Overall, it was a very successful day.
