Skyline FFA Summer Recap


The Skyline FFA chapter had a very eventful summer. It started with FFA Camp from June 3-7 at Camp Rising Sun on Lake of the Ozarks. At FFA Camp, members can earn their state leadership medal for attending leadership workshops and participating in competitions. Katelynn Wheeler earned her State Leadership Medal. This year’s All Around Camper was Katelynn Wheeler.  Members in attendance were incoming freshmen Trey Herring, Blake Darby, Katelynn Wheeler, Reagan Allen, Abigail Hammer, and Shelby Davis. 

 


On June 18th, members went to the Area X Mixer at Big Surf. Members got to socialize with FFA members from other FFA chapters while enjoying all of the attractions that Big Surf Waterpark has to offer. 

 


On July 16th, chapter officers attended officer training in Bolivar. We participated in team strengthening activities and games. Each Officer spent time in four different rooms learning different strategies for chapter improvement. After the Bolivar Officer training all the officers ate at Jasmines in Bolivar. It was a very eventful and impactful day!


On August 1st, FFA held our Back to School Bash at Skyline High School. We had a good turnout. We played capture the cow tongue (our spin on Capture the Flag), balloon pop, made a giant slip n’ slide, and played shaving cream twister! We also enjoyed grilled hot dogs with chips, and warm roasted marshmallows over a firepit. 

 


We are looking forward to the school year! In our chapter officer training we got to schedule some awesome trips for this year, including the PBR and Silver Dollar City. We are hoping to continue to increase our membership numbers and member involvement. Our officer team theme is “Live a Legacy”, and we are excited to see how the year unfolds!

Skyline FFA Tigers Roar at State FFA Convention

Members of the Skyline FFA chapter attended the 91st annual Missouri FFA State Convention on April 25-26th in Columbia on the beautiful University of Missouri campus. The Dairy Foods, Agronomy, Nursery/Landscape, and Floriculture teams all competed.  On Wednesday, the 24th, the Nursery, Agronomy, and Floriculture teams all left at 7:30 a.m. and started on their way to Columbia.  On their way, they made stops at Eldon High School for the Agronomy team to study plant ID, and also Strawberry Hill Farms and Botanical Gardens for the Nursery and Floriculture teams to look at a variety of plants.  Each team worked hard all day and even late into the night for their respective contests.

Thursday was competition day.  The Dairy Foods team and two freshman delegates, Adalee Hodges and Emma Cunningham, traveled from Skyline to the Hearnes Center.  The contests started at 11:00 a.m. and most didn’t finish until after 3:00 p.m.  Once finished, the waiting game began. The students all went to the Columbia Mall to relax.  The results didn’t show up until about 9:00 p.m.

The Nursery/Landscape team, consisting of Madasyn Haynes, Erin Bennett, and Kaitlynn Glor, got 21st and received a Group 2 Silver Rating.  The Dairy Foods team, consisting of Ally Defreece, Ashlyn Eidson, and Alyssa King, finished 30th and received a Group 2 Silver Rating.  The Floriculture team, consisting of Abigail Elder, Hannah Gruber, and Riley Conly, finished 35th and also received a Group 2 Silver Rating.  The Agronomy team, consisting of Connor Logan, Dax Beem, Sabrina Turnbow, and Chris Logan, finished first in the state, with Connor Logan placing first as an individual in the entire state.

The next morning, the students went to a college and career fair in the Hearnes Center.  While at the career show, FFA members got to explore in-state and out of state colleges and learn about potential agriculture related majors and careers.  Afterwards, they went to G & D Steakhouse, which is a tradition of FFA State-goers going back many years.  Then it was back to the Hearnes Center for a session and for the state champion Agronomy team to get their team picture before going on stage a couple hours later.  During the session, a keynote speaker told his heartbreaking yet inspiring story to the almost 10,000 students, advisors, and guests in attendance. As the Agronomy team walked across the stage they heard the cheers from all of their fellow classmates as well as friends and family members who made the trip to Columbia to show their support.

Paden Hodges and Savannah Gruber also walked across the stage on Friday evening to receive their State FFA Degree. The State FFA Degree is the highest degree that can be earned by FFA members at the state level, and earning this degree requires a commitment to record keeping and leadership activities. Overall the students had a great time, shared a lot of laughs, and learned a lot of valuable life lessons along the way.

HyperLink On Tuesday, May 28th, the Skyline FFA chapter took a trip to Valley Oaks Farms in Lone Jack, Missouri.  The trip was for the top 25 members that helped with various activities during the year or were otherwise very involved in FFA chapter activities.  Valley Oaks has a feedlot where they finish angus cattle. Every single barn is under a roof and cooled in the summer and heated in the winter for optimum comfort for the animals.  Once they are at the right weight, the cattle are ready to be slaughtered and are brought right into a building on the same property to begin the butchering process. The cuts of meat are sold in the store that they have at the farm and at local stores in the surrounding area.  The students learned a lot and had a great time touring the impressive facility.
