Tyrone seniors MaKenna LaRosa, Reilly Ronan, and Jacey Whitcomb received their Keystone Degree at the 2019 PA FFA Mid-Winter Convention held at the PA Farm Show in Harrisburg.

All three seniors have been involved in the Tyrone FFA program for the past four years.

In order to receive the highest state FFA degree, a student must be enrolled as an FFA member for at least two years, be a senior or recent graduate, complete two years of ag courses and over 300 hours in a Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) placement, participate in at least 10 FFA chapter activities and five FFA activities above the chapter level, and complete 25 hours of community service.

MaKenna LaRosa is the daughter of Jeremy and Kim LaRosa of Tyrone.

LaRosa’s SAE projects were in AgriScience. She served as the chapter’s present and is currently the president. Her favorite activities are attending conferences because it helped her to step out of her comfort zone and learn new things, while meeting people. MaKenna’s future plans are to enter the workforce and explore careers in natural resources and ecology.

Reilly Ronan is the daughter of Kimberly and Bryan Ronan of Tyrone.

Ronan’s SAE projects included AgriScience and equine industry placement. Her leadership skills were important when serving as chairman of the National FFA Week committee and Preserving our History committee.  The annual FFA Fun Clay Shoot and Mother’s Day Flower lessons were Reilly favorite FFA Activities. She plans to attend The Pennsylvania State University and major in elementary education.

Jacey Whitcomb is the daughter of Kim Whitcomb from Tyrone.

Her SAE projects involved AgriScience and school-based placement. Her favorite FFA activities were getting involved in the different events and working with new members. Jacey plans to attend school to obtain her certification as a veterinarian technician.
