WCFFA Wins Academic Success Grant

The West Central FFA Chapter was recently awarded one of 6 National Academic Success Grants sponsored by Ford.  The chapter will receive a $3000.00 grant to help buy needed materials, offset travel expenses and supplement resources that will best support and enhance their leadership development activities.  The chapter earned the grant through the National FFA Scholarship program.  The FFA provides over 2 million dollars in scholarships annually to FFA members.  17 members of the class of 2011 are members of the West Central FFA.  Each member’s grade point, ACT score, Supervised Agricultural Experience, leadership and community service activities were considered in awarding the grant.  7 of the graduating members maintained a GPA of 3.5 or above.  National FFA Scholarships were awarded to Jeremy Nettifee, $1000 Ford Scholarship; Brooke Pearson and Stacia Knuth, $1000 Cargill Community Scholarships.  WCFFA Chapter Officers will work with the West Central FFA Alumni to create a proposal for the use of the funds.
