A state FFA program awarded 12 Hills-Beaver Creek High School FFA Chapter members their official blue membership jackets.
Each year the Minnesota FFA Foundation selects students through online application for the Blue Jackets Bright Futures program.
Students Amallia Ternus, Layla Deelstra, Lanae Elbers, Damion Meinerts, Carter Vande Voort, Riley Tage, Alexis Gardner-Swenson, Larissa Steinhoff, Sylvia Fick, Brynn Rauk, Megan Vis and Taryn Birger were selected to receive the organization’s corduroy jackets.
The program provides jackets to students starting in FFA. Average cost of the jackets is $85.
“A personalized FFA jacket provides recipients with a sense of pride while giving them ownership of their FFA experiences,” said Lavyne Rada, the state FFA association leadership development coordinator.
“FFA plays an important role in developing agricultural and leadership skills in students while preparing them for their future careers.”
