Milford High School FFA chapter wins during Delaware FFA state convention

Milford FFA members show off their plaques and certificates for all of their achievements they won at the state convention.

The Milford FFA Chapter brought 30 students to participate in the Delaware FFA State Convention that was held at Delaware State University March 11 and 12.

Milford FFA students competed against more than 700 other FFA members from all across the state in Career Development Events, Leadership Development Events as well as were involved in leadership workshops and community service projects while attending the convention.

Three FFA members from Milford’s group were awarded their Delaware FFA State Degree which requires members to participate in a wide variety of state and chapter FFA events, complete at least two agriculture classes and take part in over 25 hours of community service. Allie Davis, Alison Nordberg and Brianna Reynolds received this high award. Alison also received the State Star in Agricultural Placement which is awarded to the one FFA member in the state who has excelled the most in their FFA experiences throughout high school. Alison will be traveling to the Big E in the fall to compete for the Regional Star in Agricultural Placement.

This year three Milford FFA members (L to R: Brianna Reynolds, Alison Nordberg, Allie Davis) were awarded their Delaware FFA State Degrees.

Two FFA members from Milford received proficiency awards which is a reflection of years of hard work they put into their supervised agricultural experience projects they completed while taking agriculture classes.

Harley Lardner received a first place proficiency award in Diversified Livestock Placement and Julia Adams received a second place proficiency award in Dairy Cattle Placement. Harley’s proficiency will move on to compete at the National FFA level over the summer.

Julie Walls from the Milford FFA served as the Nominating Committee member for the Delaware FFA Association State Officer Selection Committee. She was tasked with spending countless hours interviewing and listening to State Officer Candidates and selected the 2019-2020 Delaware FFA State Officers.

Six Milford FFA members traveled to the Delaware Ag Museum to help with the Day of Service Project for state convention. Curtis Sharp, Sarah Hastings, Julia Adams, Allie Davis, Harley Lardner and Kayla Jefferson helped pack meals for Delaware Veterans and clean up the Ag Museum to prepare for their upcoming benefit.
