Woodmont Middle School’s Future Farmers of America (FFA) chapter has been recognized as a 3-Star Chapter for 2022 by the National FFA Organization. The 3-Star rating is the highest possible rating from the National FFA Organization.
The program recognizes outstanding FFA chapters from throughout the country that actively implement the mission and strategies of the organization. According to the National FFA, “These chapters improve chapter operations using the National Quality FFA Chapter Standards and a Program of Activities that emphasizes growing leaders, building communities and strengthening agriculture. Chapters are rewarded for providing educational experiences for the entire membership”.
Chapters that received star ratings during judging this summer will be recognized at the 95th National FFA Convention & Expo, October 26-29 in Indianapolis.
“Feeding some 9 billion people by mid-century brings with it unprecedented challenges for today’s farmers,” said Amy Allen, manager, national corporate contributions for John Deere. “The skills and experiences learned through the National Chapter Award Program will help meet the critical needs.”
The National FFA Organization is a school-based national youth leadership development organization of more than 760,000 student members as part of 8,700 local FFA chapters in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.
Congratulations, Woodmont Middle School!
