Verona FFA achieves Bronze at convention

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

Verona FFA placed in the Bronze Division at the 84th Missouri FFA Convention. Only 20 percent of state chapters receive a Bronze level chapter designation.

Chapter activity awards, sponsored by FCS Financial, are given to chapters achieving excellence in student, chapter and community development. The Verona FFA Chapter advisor is Joe Moore.

The Verona student development activities included "Spring Ag Industry Tour" to promote local agribusinesses and informed decision-making in the pursuit and establishment of an agriculture career. Other activities included a chapter Christmas party.

Chapter development activities are designed to promote excellence within the chapter. The Verona FFA hosts an eighth grade recruitment program to encourage membership and retention of FFA members. Other chapter activities include promoting a positive image of the chapter and officer training.

The Verona community development activities included collecting canned goods to distribute to needy families, cleaning and maintenance at the community park and hosting a blood drive twice a year.
