The Anna Chapter swept the chapter awards winning the top chapter in Student Development, Chapter Development and Community Development.
The chapter members worked hard for the honor and were excited about their success.
“We did a lot of new innovations this year that set us apart from years in the past. We had our family fun nights and, basically, that is when family members can get involved. And, it was a good opportunity to get younger people interested in FFA too,” said Summer McCracken, from the Anna Chapter. “We had our ‘Dimes for Dentinger’ plan. A student that would have been in the senior class died of an asthma attack in fifth grade and we wanted to do something to remember him. We raised over $2,000 for the American Lung Association. We also had chicken feed trials in the classroom where high school ag students monitored chickens fed different feed to see which one worked best. We butchered the chickens and used them to feed veteran’s for our Veteran’s Day program.”
