National FFA Week

Walhalla FFA Celebrates National FFA Week

(Walhalla, SC) – Members of the Walhalla FFA Chapter participated in various activities and events to celebrate National FFA Week which is held annually during the week of George Washington’s Birthday. The week provides an opportunity for FFA members to educate the public about agriculture and FFA.

On Wednesday, February 20th the Walhalla FFA Chapter Officer team traveled to Columbia, SC for South Carolina FFA Legislative Appreciation Day. The officers had the opportunity to visit the office of Hugh Weathers who serves as the South Carolina Commissioner of Agriculture. They also visited Thomas C. Alexander, South Carolina State Senator for Oconee and Pickens Counties.

On Friday, February 22nd two first year Walhalla FFA members, Evan Justus and Jonkelly Hitzler, participated in the Mr. FFA Scholarship Competition that is held annually at Pendleton High School. Many fellow Walhalla FFA members attended the event to show their support for Evan and Jonkelly.

To conclude National FFA Week, three members competed in the Horse Evaluation CDE on Saturday, February 23rd at the Crescent High School Livestock Arena. Career Development Events (CDEs) build on what is learned in agricultural classes and encourage members to put their knowledge into practice. Students were required to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of equine science by evaluating and ranking horses based on breed characteristics, conformation and performance. Participants defended their decisions through oral reasons in front of a panel of judges. Students also solved problems related to everything from the nutrition and reproduction of horses to the tack/equipment and feed used to care for horses.

Walhalla FFA placed 10th in the event. Team members included (from left to right): Katlyn Fortson, Caitlin Davis, and Catilyn Ruiz. Josh McCall and Christopher Lunsford are the agriculture teachers and FFA advisors for the Walhalla FFA Chapter.

South Carolina agricultural education serves more than 12,000 students across the state. Students receive instruction in one of five different pathways within the Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources career cluster. The South Carolina FFA Association is comprised of over 7,000 members across the state. The mission of the SC FFA Association is to develop premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.
