The FFA tribute this week goes to Makenna Garrett, Virginia State FFA Secretary.
Makenna joined FFA after dropping a dance class and picking up a vet science course, realizing that ag is where she wanted to be.
She’s started banquet season and is excited to see the chapters close out their year. Makenna plans to continue in agriculture in college.
The weekly FFA Chapter Tribute is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the good work of your local chapter. Tell us about what you're doing, give us some history from your group and tell our viewers of the work you do in the community. FFA chapters across the country deserve recognition for the work they do, make sure we include yours.
To have your chapter considered for this weekly feature, send along information about your group by e-mail to Max Armstrong at [email protected]. They'll get your group on the list of those that will be covered in the future. It's a chance to share your story beyond the local community. Drop Orion or Max a "line" soon.
