Recently sixteen students from Provo and Timpview High Schools traveled to Richfield with Mr. Fredrickson to compete at the FFA State Convention. There they were able to participate in several workshops and leadership sessions and hear from great keynote speakers. At the convention, Provo High’s Julie Cook received her FFA State Degree which is the highest degree she can earn from the State. She was also awarded a State Proficiency award in Equine Science Placement. Her proficiency application will now go on to the National FFA Association to be judged. It will be placed either gold, silver, bronze, or high individual and could win a national award.
A former Provo High student, Ariadna Castro, applied for an American FFA Degree–the highest degree students can receive in FFA. She was approved by the State and recognized on stage at the convention. Her application will now go to the National FFA, and she and Mr. Fredrickson will be going to the National FFA Convention in Louisville, Kentucky, this coming October for her to receive this honor.
Finally, our Provo FFA chapter received the Superior Chapter award at the convention. Congratulations Mr. Fredrickson and members of FFA!
