The Urbana FFA held its annual Greenhand Ceremony on Nov. 5 to honor the students who earned their degree. There were 15 FFA members who received this honor. Recipients were Kendra Baccus, Jazmine Collins, Keyanna Green, Alistair Greenlee, Courtney Gunsaulies, Kendyl Hiltibran, Emma Holbrook, Marah Kerns, Kaylin Lance, McKayla Mills, Christofer Napper, Morgan Parker, Taylor Parker, Sarah Preston and Levi Stapleton.
In order to receive the greenhand degree they have to be enrolled in an agriculture class, have learned and explained the FFA motto, creed and salute, know the history and guidelines and the official dress, and have an SAE (supervised agricultural experience) plan.
There were special guests present such as member Mallary Caudill. Mallary is the Ohio FFA’s Sentinel, and while she was at the ceremony she gave a speech about how important it is to take chances, and try new things to step out of your comfort zone, and how FFA can open doors and provide avenues to take chances. After the meeting members and guests were invited to enjoy refreshments and fellowship. This provided members/parents to meet the teachers and the officer team. A special thanks to all the parents and guests that joined us.
