Williamsport FFA makes their mark at Farm Show
Jan. 11 will be a day to remember for many of the members in the Williamsport Future Farmers of America chapter, particularly one senior and six first year FFA members.
Kryslynne Vroman, Williamsport Future Farmers of America member and Williamsport Area High School senior, recently was awarded with her Keystone Degree. This is the highest degree that the state can bestow on any of its members.
Keystone Degree recipients must demonstrate that they have completed two or more years of agriculture education, operate and maintain a Supervised Agriculture Experience (SAE) project outside of class time, demonstrate leadership ability, document community service hours, have an outstanding scholastic record and be active members of their local FFA chapter.
Vroman, daughter of Robyn and Jeff Whitman, of Williamsport, is the president of the Williamsport FFA. She has kept her SAE records on floral design placement, accepting and completing floral orders for weddings, prom, banquets and more. Vroman plans on attending Penn State University in the fall to major in agriculture science.
In addition to the Keystone Degree ceremony, six Williamsport FFA members were presented with their FFA jackets. The PA FFA Foundation and donors from across Pennsylvania gave jackets to members who answered the question, “What does the FFA jacket mean to you?”
The Williamsport FFA was awarded the six jackets at the Farm Show. The recipients include Dominic Howard, Kattie Rooker, Noah Eck, Emily Fisher, Patric King and Khyla Dunkleberger.
