Greenhand Ceremony

Submitted by carey.white on Wed, 12/21/2016 - 11:08

We want to congratulate our first year members for earning their Greenhand Degrees.   At Springville Junior High there was a creed speaking contest in which members competed in saying the creed. The creed is a five paragraph belief statement that FFA members memorize.

All of the first year members were awarded their Greenhand pin for their jackets and also received a certificate in honor of being a Greenhand. Congratulations to all those who received their Greenhand Degree.

Honoring our veterans

Submitted by carey.white on Tue, 12/20/2016 - 12:25

Springville High School and the FFA honored our U.S veterans for their service throughout the week of November 7 the 11. FFA and Student Council prepared care packages to send to soldiers currently serving. We invited U.S. veterans to join us for breakfast on the morning of Veteran’s Day and held an assembly afterwards honoring them and their service for our country. It was a very touching display. We want to thank all those who have served and are currently serving.

2016 Quiz Bowl Winners

Submitted by carey.white on Fri, 12/16/2016 - 14:02

Congratulations to quiz bowl team “c8h11no3” which is “Norepinephrine” (a chemical composition similar to adrenaline, used to treat life-threatening conditions such as shock and low blood pressure).  It’s a good thing this top winning team (Maxwell Riche, Brian Udall, Brady Dolan, and Elizabeth Setzer) didn’t need the actual Norepinephrine since their brains were naturally working overtime to beat their opponents, “The Therapists” -- Jared Buler, Brett Bodily, Simon Laraway, and Morgan Allen.  Final score 140-120.
