SEnior FFA Chapter honored
The Brooksville Senior FFA Chapter from Hernando High School competed as a national finalist for the Models of Innovation National Chapter Award program. It was the second year the chapter was a national finalist. Only 30 chapters were selected as finalists out of more than 650 nationwide. The local chapter was recognized at a banquet during the 83rd National FFA Convention in Indianapolis Oct. 20-23. The chapter received a $500 grant for the school. The National FFA Chapter Award program recognizes FFA chapters for developing a detailed program of activities. Each activity provides opportunities for members to excel in one of three areas: student, chapter or community development.
