Just two weeks after Nationals, the Kuna FFA held their annual Harvest dance, and their chapter Creed and Degree Night. While Harvest is usually a fundraiser for the chapter, it was agreed upon that all proceeds should go to Boone Bartlome and his family to help them through this difficult time. The chapter is pleased to announce that they raised over $1,500 for the Bartlome family. We would like to thank Hal Coburn for donating his time as DJ to the event and Joanne Curtis for donating her time as photographer.
Chapter Creed and Degree night is when all students wishing to participate in the Creed Speaking career development event are able to prove themselves by reciting the creed in front of 3 judges, the chapter advisors, their peers, and a room full of people. All participants did an outstanding job, but three really stood out from the crowd: in third place, and receiving thirty dollars off of an FFA jacket, was Erin Kelly; in second place, and receiving forty dollars off of an FFA jacket, was Mason Roberts; and in first place, receiving a free FFA jacket, and representing Kuna at the district event, was Ross Blattner. There were over twenty participants in the contest, all of whom received their Greenhand FFA Degree (along with thirty other peers). Over thirty 2nd year students received their Chapter FFA Degree. The Kuna FFA would like to thank the judges of the Creed Speaking Event, Cassandra Zufelt, Brittany Ratliff, and Josh Sanders, all of whom were asked to judge one of the most competitive creed contests in the chapter’s history.
The Kuna FFA would again like to thank all of the members of the community for their support in their recent events. Without you, none of these events would be possible. Additionally, we would like to reiterate our congratulations to all participants in the recent events.
