CULTIVATING LEADERSHIP: Farming the future

FFA-SouthSumterMiddleSchool

The Future Farmers of America (FFA) chapter at South Sumter Middle School is one of only four chapters nationwide to be recognized with the National Outstanding Middle School Chapter Award. The chapter successfully completed and received superior ratings in 15 FFA events that encouraged members to grow as individuals, to work as part of a team, and to serve others. One of those events included the Beef and Boogie Festival, where FFA members made butter and educated more than 200 attendees about agriculture.

The school joins four other U.S. finalists: Chatham Middle School in Virginia; Signal Knob Middle School in Virginia; Tomlin Middle School of Florida; and Lincoln Middle School of Florida. The school will send two delegates to the National FFA Convention in Kentucky to participate in a presentation and interview process, which will determine the overall winner.
