Milk Quality team members

Manor FFA members earn national awards

Manor FFA and several of its members earned national awards recently at the National FFA Convention in Louisville, Ky.

Three members who graduated from Penn Manor High School in 2012 – Tyler Bauman, Alex Cantey and Caleb Hess – received the American FFA Degree.

Less than 1 percent of all FFA members earn that recognition, which is based on leadership skills; volunteer service; and planning, managerial and financial skills in a supervised agricultural experience.

In addition:

  • The Manor FFA Milk Quality and Products team earned an overall bronze award. Member Nate Phan earned a silver medal, and fellow members Neve Consylman, Rose Drumm and Shyanne Murray each earned a bronze.
  • The Meats Evaluation Team earned an overall bronze medal. Members Katey and Sammy Bleacher each earned a silver medal, and fellow members Justin High and Emily Witmer each earned bronze.
  • The Manor FFA chapter also earned a Three Star Chapter Rating, the highest possible rating, based on its program of activities.

Congratulations on the awards!
