Spanish Fork FFA recently returned from the 92nd National FFA Convention held in Indianapolis Indiana. While there, students had the opportunity to compete, listen to motivational speakers, attend workshops, talk to potential employers and schools, and learn more about agriculture through industry tours. Eight students had the opportunity to compete in five different competitions, where we were able to have some incredible success.
14 Springville High school students spent last week in Indianapolis, Indiana for the National FFA Convention and Expo. We were honored to have 2 state winning teams from Springville this year. Our Agricultural Communications team coached by our new FFA Advisor McKayla received a Silver Ranking for their efforts. Agricultural Communications team members are Kameron Talbot, Jaynee Giffing, Rachel Hetfield and Karly Bracken. Our Agricultural Sales team coached by Ellary Hendrickson our Junior High FFA Advisor also received a Silver Ranking in their contest.
Students from our FBLA and DECA clubs had the unique opportunity to tour and meet with business executives from DoTerra and RevRoad. Students gained insight into different aspects of a business and what it takes to operate successful companies. Thanks to DoTerra and RevRoad for hosting us!
Nebo was in front of the nation. The National Concurrent Enrollment Conference was held in Salt Lake City, and they asked Utah Valley University to talk about how they have increased their numbers. UVU asked members of the Nebo School District to come and share how the two have worked together and grew College and Career opportunities for students faster than any other school district in the state. Cameron Gabler (2019 graduate) talked about winning the CE art show and using that to inspire himself and others.
SFHS FFA students represented Nebo School District at Utah Valley's annual CTE Get the Scoop event on September 23rd. Junior High and High School students throughout the valley came together at Provo High School to "taste test" a variety of Career & Technical Education programs including Agriculture, Business & Marketing, IT, Health Science, Trades and much much more!
Earlier in the summer, FCCLA members traveled to California for National Competitions. We competed among the best of the nation, took behind the scenes tours of Disneyland through their culinary arts and costuming programs, attended awesome workshops and sessions, and we experienced an earthquake (Luckily it was small!).
These students have worked their guts out and dedicated so much time and effort to their projects since January. This week they’ve seen their work come full circle. It’s so rewarding.
In October of 2019, Nebo School District will be represented at the 92nd National FFA Convention and Expo in Indianapolis as Nebo FFA students compete and represent Utah. In addition, some students will be receiving their American FFA degrees. Good luck to these students as they travel and compete in Indianapolis.
