The Pendleton High School FFA Chapter made us all proud with outstanding performances and projects during this year’s state FFA convention. The state convention is held every year in March, and despite the restrictions imposed by the pandemic, students were able to compete virtually.
Three PHS students earned their State FFA Degrees for their Supervised Agricultural Experiences, which is the highest degree a student can earn at the state level. In order to earn the degree, students must also demonstrate leadership and community service. Congratulations to Tyler Spratling, Kinley McAnally and Lexi Bowen for earning this distinguished honor. In addition, Lexi Bowen finished in the top 4 for the Proficiency Award in Sheep Production. Each of the three students recognized above have developed enterprises over the course of several years. Said advisor Marty Campbell, “They are leaders within the chapter as well as the school, and equally important, they are a lot of fun to work with!”
All of our FFA students work diligently to develop real-world skills both inside and outside of the classroom. Behind every successful student are dedicated adults. We are grateful for the commitment our two advisors put into the program as well. Special thanks to Mrs. Kylee Hunt and Mr. Marty Campbell for your dedication and work with our students.
