This weekend we had the exhausting opportunity to take 51 of our Fremont FFA students to the State FFA convention in Cedar City for 3 days of leadership, learning and competition. We are proud of these kids and their accomplishments and wanted to let you know how they did. Many students competed. We also had 45 of our students help with a day of service in Cedar City, giving community service to our host city. The kids competing had to win at Chapter or Area and qualify to compete at State.
We had several students who competed for State Level Proficiency awards. This is where they compete against all the other students with individual projects in their award area. We had one student win her State Proficiency area in Equine Science (that's horses for those of you who don't know). Only 1st place kids are ranked.
Roy High Chapter display received 1st place and will be competing at FFA Nationals in October.
Municipal Elementary hosted author Frank L. Cole on March 13th. The assembly was a huge success! The students enjoyed Frank's enthusiasm for reading and books. He is the published author of 10 books, with his latest book "Potion Masters" being released just this past January. Frank told great personal stories about a substitute bus driver when he was a student in Kentucky, another about his clock radio transmitting his sister's telephone conversations, and best of all, teaching the students that to become an amazing author they need to do four things: 1) Be weird! 2) Read 3) Observe 4) Believe! After the assembly, Mr. Cole did a book signing in our foyer with our students. He autographed each book and gave each student an autographed poster as well. The students & faculty at Municipal were impressed and enjoyed our Frank L. Cole visit.
