Springville High FFA students recently attended the State FFA Convention on March 9-10 and received many honors and awards. Andalyn Hall placed 1st in the Agri-Science Animal Systems category and will soon compete for a trip to the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis this coming October. Andalyn is also representing Springville High’s FFA and Springville Jr. High at the Central Utah Science and Engineering Fair at Brigham Young University next week.
Caitlin Dinkel competed in the creed contest and did quite well. Darryl Barnes was named 2nd runner up as the Star State Greenhand in Production Agriculture for his project of raising and selling market steers.
Jason Averett, Lauren Ridge, and Dadoka Mower received their State FFA Degree recognition for three years of membership and a commitment to an agricultural project.
Past students Logan Jones and Miles Beach were recognized for receiving their American FFA Degree and will again be recognized at the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis in October of 2012.
Springville FFA recently received a $2,000 Food for All grant to assist with our community garden that is located at the Nebo Learning Center. All the plants for this garden are being grown in our Springville High greenhouse and will be managed all summer by FFA members. All produce raised will be free to the public and any surplus donated to the Utah Food Bank. Christina Nolasco has been an integral part of this success.
