The Armstrong FFA has been crazy busy this summer!
They attended Illinois State Convention June 11-13th in Springfield, IL. The students participated in different activities such as sessions, team building activities, and interacting with other members from across the state. At the convention the Armstrong FFA received the Gold recognition for the scrapbook that was done by Makayla Learned, Bronze for their National Chapter Award and Gabi Hudson and Cheyenne Cade were awarded their State Degrees. The students had a blast and got a lot of great ideas for the upcoming school year!
Miss Foran attended another CASE conference June 16-21 at Kansas State University where she learned about a new plant science curriculum she will implement in the Horticulture classes.
Gabi Hudson and Cheyenne Cade attended and had an amazing time at Washington Leadership Conference! The two girls met FFA members from all over the country, took educational tours, participated in a service day, and learned so many wonderful leadership skills! They highly recommend the conference to other students!
Lastly, the Armstrong FFA helped the I & I Tractor Club work the root beer float stand as well as sold tickets for the restored tractor that was done by our students with the help of Kenny Knight.
It has been a great summer so far and we still look forward to the rest of the summer activities as well as the upcoming year!
