This past month, the Van-Far FFA Chapter was recognized as the winner of the National Nationwide FFA Chapter Tribute.
Not only was our chapter recognized, our Advisor, Miss (Tonya) St. John, was recognized as the winner of the Nationwide Teacher of the Year.
There have been a lot of changes this year and we are excited to continue growing as a chapter. We have been working hard in and out of class to grow not only as a group but as individuals as well.
This year alone we have participated in the National Contest, held chapter activities, raised money for a great cause, and so much more.
Our teacher was recognized this year for all of her hard work and dedication to not only us but her previous students and school as well.
Receiving this award is something that means so much to our chapter.
This award is not just another plaque to hang on the wall.
This award means our hard work and dedication is actually paying off and that the people that support us are and can be proud of what our Ag department is doing.
