On February 15th, the Anna FFA Alumni held their annual breakfast at the Anna Elementary. This year’s breakfast was quite successful, serving over 650 meals which included whole hog sausage, eggs, pancakes, yogurt, doughnuts, milk, coffee, and juice. The yogurt that was provided at the breakfast and the mix used to make the juice were donated by Dannon and McDonald’s restaurant, respectively. The Anna FFA would like to thank all those who made this breakfast a success. Without the efforts of members and various volunteers, this event would not be possible.
After the breakfast, a short degree ceremony was held to recognize several Anna FFA members. 72 freshmen students received their Greenhand FFA Degrees and 49 sophomores received their Chapter FFA Degrees. For freshmen to earn their Greenhand FFA degrees they must have a plan for a supervised agricultural experience (SAE) and have a good general knowledge of the FFA Organization. The sophomores also have requirements that they must reach to earn their Chapter Degrees. These requirements consist of FFA involvement, ten community service hours, and having put their SAE into action. The Anna FFA was very pleased to see their students reach these accomplishments.
