Two members of the Quincy FFA Chapter, the advisors and one community member have been honored with awards from the District IX of the Washington Association of Agriculture Educators.
Chapter President Noah Nielson and Reporter Bethanny Safe were approved and certified by the district as recipients of the State FFA Degree. To qualify they had to meet certain qualifications including earning or investing a minimum of $1,000 in a production SAE project, working a minimum of 300 hours in a placement SAE project, participating in at least 5 FFA leadership activities at or above the district level and completing a minimum of 25 hours of community service in at least 3 different activities.
They will receive their award at the 88th Washington State FFA Convention in May in Pullman on the campus of Washington State University.
Jim Poldevart, longtime supporter of the Quincy FFA and member of the Quincy High School Agriculture Education Advisory Board, was nominated and confirmed as the District IX recipient of the Honorary State FFA Degree. He will be honored on stage at state convention, as well.
District IX Ag Teachers also recognized the Quincy High School as the District IX Outstanding Secondary Agriculture Education Program for 2018. That award will be presented at the WAAE Summer Conference in Vancouver in June.
