FFA Recognizes Members for Community Service

The FFA honored its top community service volunteers at their annual awards night on April 11 at the TAHS auditorium
Nora Hoy, Paige Hoy, and Carlie Nowlin were in the top 11 FFA members who documented their community service hours from the start of the school year.

Service plays a vital role in strengthening communities and creating positive change in people’s lives. When individuals volunteer their time and skills to help others, a meaningful impact is made.

The Tyrone FFA acknowledged the community service done by their members at their annual awards celebration on April 11.

The Tyrone Area FFA requires all its members to complete at least eight hours of community service by the end of the school year. However, many students exceed this requirement, going above and beyond to support their community in various ways.

“I believe community service benefits both our elders and younger generations. Senior citizens enjoy engaging in fun activities, while we, as kids, take pleasure in organizing and assisting with these events,” freshman Josie Dicken said.

Dicken has been active in the Cedarwood Rehabilitation and Care Center.

During the 86th Tyrone Area FFA Annual Awards Ceremony, the following students were recognized with the Blue AET Record-Keeping Badge for their dedicated community service efforts:

  • Josie Dicken
  • John Eaken
  • Gracie Graham
  • Neveah Hollabaugh
  • Nora Hoy
  • Paige Hoy
  • Abigail Keyser
  • Carlie Nowlin
  • Catie Sklenar
  • Frances Weaver
  • Bailey Woomer

An impressive 98% of Tyrone Area FFA in-school members contributed 831 hours of community service during this school year. Among them, the top 11 members devoted 368 hours since the beginning of the academic year. Nora Hoy was the top chapter member for 2024, volunteering 62 hours of community service.

“The impact of community service on our community is what drives me to serve,” Hoy said.

Engaging in community service has enabled Tyrone Area FFA members to foster new connections, cultivate empathy, and nurture a sense of responsibility. This valuable experience enriches their lives and prepares them for future endeavors.
