FFA chapters and members from Beulah Middle School, Northview High School and Tate High School were recently honored at the 94th Florida FFA State Convention at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando.
Tate High School received the Florida First FFA Chapter Award. The award was launched to recognize superior achievements of the Agricultural Education and FFA Chapters. To be eligible for this award, a chapter must be proficient in several areas, including alumni and community partnerships, financial planning, public relations, recruiting and other FFA activities.
Beulah Middle and Tate High were selected from Florida’s Best FFA Chapters. Selection of these chapters is based on completion of the National Chapter Award program application. These chapters have excelled in the areas of developing leaders, building communities and strengthening agriculture and have worked hard to achieve the mission and vision of the FFA.
Northview High and Tate High chapters were recognized for 100% membership. In order to receive this award, each student enrolled in agriculture must also be a bona fide member of the FFA and be active in the leadership development programs of the FFA program.
