December is a slower month for the Suffield Regional FFA as the year 2023 comes to an end. This week we wrap up our annual Holiday Sale. Suffield Agriscience would like to thank the community and its supporters for purchasing our holiday products this year!
On December 20, students will attend the Forever Blue Ceremony during the school day to honor the new American Degree recipients that are from the Suffield Regional FFA Chapter.
The American FFA Degree is the highest achievement you can receive from the National FFA Organization. About 1% of FFA members receive their American FFA Degree, this year we have four recipients which include Renee Tautic, Makena Shea, Brittani Burke and Makayla O’Sullivan. These individuals got their American FFA Degree at the National FFA Convention in November. Also, Suffield had 25 students, four teachers, and two chaperones attend the National FFA Convention and Expo. Students got to participate in leadership workshops, tour educational facilities, and interact with students from all over the country. Additionally, 16 of the 25 students were on a Career Development Event (CDE) team.
