Spanish Fork FFA
Utah FFA Announces proficiency award winners
Students from Spanish Fork FFA were able to go and assist with the IFA Customer Appreciation Lunch. They were able to serve food and mingle with members of the agricultural community
Spanish Fork FFA had three students who moved on from the Area level to compete in the proficiency awards. On February 12 they were judged and the state winners were announced. The following were named winners from our chapter.
Tori R: Landscape Management
Kirsty S: Vegetable Production
Kaitlin H: Diversified Livestock, Swine Production, and Ag Mechanics.
The state only allows you to win one division so Kaitlin has chosen to move on in the Diversified Livestock area. These students will receive awards at State FFA Convention held March 10-12. In addition they will move on to represent the state of Utah at the National Level this summer. We appreciate their dedication to the Supervised Agricultural Experience program.

It's auction time!
Cliff Brimhall with Reams Western Outfitters and Grocery store has been supportive of our efforts with this banquet. They have donated items, helped with the meal and been of general support. We thank them for the dedication to helping our chapter succeed
This year the officers decided they wanted to acknowledge the history that our chapter has and hold an auction as a fundraiser. The Alumni banquet was a great way to recognize past officer teams, members, and supporters. In addition we recognized those who have helped our chapter and held a very successful auction. We look forward to establishing this tradition within our chapter. Thanks to the community support that we had that evening there were around 125 people in attendance and we raised funds that will help with future FFA endeavors.
JoAnn Tuttle is an advocate for student success as part of the CTE programs. She is supportive of not only what we do within the classroom, but out of the classroom as well. She has been instrumental in helping us gain new equipment and facilities that help our chapter have even better opportunities. We thank her for her dedication and service to our chapter over the years.
