FFA receives generous donation
By K. Hoffert, L. Konecky
So far in this FFA year we’ve had several things happen. Early on in the school year our FFA Chapter attended the 2013 Impact Leadership Conference in Curtis. The Nebraska State FFA Officer team was also in Curtis and worked with our officers on making a difference in our community.
Rebecca Cornelius, president; Tayler Walter, vice president and Brady Mailand, treasurer also went to National FFA Convention, held in Louisville, Ky., with our advisor, Doug Babbitt. They all agreed it was a wonderful experience.
Livestock judging and LSEs are coming up, they both provide lots of opportunities for a trip to State FFA through the evaluation of livestock and leadership skill competitions.
Coming up, we have the fourth annual Pink Out basketball game against Chase County on Jan. 16 at Perkins County. Please come and support the fight against breast cancer. T-shirts will be available no later than the middle of December. Please contact an FFA member to order one.
The money raised goes to assisting local women by giving them vouchers to provide a mammogram for those who are underinsured or not insured at all. Come cheer on our girls and boys as they battle it out for a great cause!
Another great program our FFA Chapter is supporting is the “I Believe in the Future of Agriculture” Campaign. Through cooperate sponsorship, any money that we send in will be matched and increased by 10 percent to 20 percent. The money we make goes to the new chapter memorial scholarship dedicated to Michael Dreiling and Katie Rowley.
The $850 donation made by Frenchman Valley Coop to the Katie and Michael scholarship is appreciated.
You can donate to this campaign by filling out an “I Believe” card at any of the banks in the county or donate money straight to the Perkins County FFA through the high school. We thank you for your continued support of our chapter in all of our endeavors.
