The National FFA Organization recently selected the Appomattox Sr. FFA Chapter of Appomattox County High School as a 3-star winner in the National FFA Chapter Award Program.
The chapter members were recognized during a special session of the 93rd National FFA Convention.
The program recognizes outstanding FFA chapters from throughout the country that actively implement the mission and strategies of the organization.
These chapters improve chapter operations using the National Quality FFA Chapter Standards and a Program of Activities that emphasizes growing leaders, building communities and strengthening agriculture.
Chapters are rewarded for providing educational experiences for the entire membership.
Every year, chapters are recognized as having earned a one, two, or three-star rating on their application.
The three-star rating is the highest level of accomplishment a chapter may achieve. The chapter at Appomattox County High School is among the top 5 percent of chapters in the nation.
