FFA Strawberry Sales Completed
Rodney Beckwith

The Hillsboro FFA was busy this past month with Strawberry sales, 68 students in the FFA sold a total of 519 whole flats of strawberries raising $11,418. The FFA uses the money from the strawberry sale to help pay for CDE events, National and State Convention. Our top sellers this year was a 3 way tie between Carter Boyd, Dalayna Collins and Riley Collins. Each of them sold 24 flats each. Thank you to everyone who purchases strawberry, the Hillsboro FFA appreciates your support!

On April 7th, the Hillsboro FFA Chapter hosted their annual awards ceremony at the high school. The Hillsboro FFA officers organized the ceremony and awarded all of the members in the chapter for their hard work and dedication throughout the year. Rhett Holland, Hannah Holland’s father, also spoke to all of the members and parents about the extreme impact FFA has on its members and especially his daughters and family. The chapter officers recognized every freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior for all of their involvement and favorite activities throughout the year. Many members received awards for competing in different Career Development Events(CDE’s), selling fruit for the annual fruit sale, selling strawberries for our strawberry sale, and multiple members were awarded for proficiency awards based upon their Supervised Agricultural Experience(SAE) project. We also recognized our members that received their State and American degrees this year. Concluding the ceremony, the 2024-2025 Hillsboro FFA chapter officers were installed for the upcoming year. Congratulations to all of the Hillsboro FFA members and their families for their time and dedication to the Hillsboro FFA!
