State FFA reporter Sam Loy and vice president Jacob Kinzer came to visit the Tyrone Area FFA chapter on November 29, 2018. The officers conducted interactive lessons with the students, challenging them to think outside of the box and learn about the many opportunities they can gain by being involved in the FFA.

“The officers were really nice and actually interacted with us. The best part, we taught them to play Funky Chicken and Happy Salmon,” said sophomore Brandon Sprankle.

“The officers were really nice and actually interacted with us. The best part, we as members taught them to play Funky Chicken and Happy Salmon,” said Brandon Sprankle, sophomore student. ”

The activities focused on teamwork, communication, and a magic trick to show students that communication is large part of what we need beyond high school. The students had a great time laughing and interacting with the officers.

Both state FFA officers are taking a year off of college for the opportunity to represent the more than 12,390 Pennsylvania FFA members and conduct school visits.  This provided an opportunity for the students to see what they can accomplish when they graduate and continue in the agricultural industry or FFA.

“It was nice to meet the people who represent us on at the State FFA level,” added sophomore Noah Frantz.

“I think what surprised the members the most is that Sam and Jacob graduated with only 40-80 students from their home high schools.  This gave our students an idea that even though you are from a small community, one can go out and have amazing adventures,” said FFA adviser Tiffany Hoy.
