Nashville FFA Chapter Receives Three Star National Chapter Award
By Alex Johannes
The National FFA Organization recently recognized the Nashville FFA Chapter as a three-star winner in the National FFA Chapter Award program.
A three-star winner indicates that the Nashville FFA Chapter is within the top third of all FFA chapters in the nation and this is one of the most prestigious awards that can be bestowed upon an FFA Chapter.
Chapter members were invited to the 89th annual National FFA Convention and Expo, which they attended on October 18-20, in Indianapolis, Ind., where they were recognized for this honor.
The National FFA Chapter Award program recognizes FFA chapters for developing and conducting a detailed program of activities.
Each activity provides opportunities for FFA members to excel in one of three areas – student, chapter, or community development.
Every year, FFA chapters are recognized as having earned a one, two, or three-star rating on their application.
The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 649,355 student members who belong to one of 7,859 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The organization is also supported by 225,891 alumni members in 1,934 alumni chapters throughout the U.S.
