Wyoming’s newest chapter recognizes members

Wyoming’s newest FFA chapter, the Big Country FFA from Cheyenne South High School, recently hosted an awards recognition ceremony where 28 members received their FFA Degrees.

Wearing their brand new FFA jackets sponsored by the Craig and Susan Thomas Foundation, 12 students received their greenhand certificate and pin while 16 seventh and eighth grade students received their Discovery Degree. Under the direction of Advisor Ty Berry, the High Plains FFA officers of Cheyenne Central conducted the ceremony. High Plains FFA also awarded 24 greenhand degrees and 11 Discovery Degrees to its members. It all took place in the auditorium of the new South High School with a large gathering of FFA members, parents and guests.

South High School opened Fall 2010 with only freshmen and sophomore students. Next year will bring the addition of a junior class and finally the seniors will come on board in 2012- 2013. Laramie County School District #1 recognizes the value of an agriculture program and made a firm commitment to include an agriculture facility in the planning stage for South High. With the addition of the Big Country FFA, Cheyenne now has three FFA chapters and provides all LCSD#1 students with the opportunity to become involved in high school agriculture and FFA.
