Newly Established Genesee Valley FFA Travels to State Conference


From Genesee Valley Central School:

Students from the recently founded Genesee Valley Central School (GVCS) FFA attended the New York State FFA Convention in Buffalo last week.

Kylee Christensen, Jade Rounds, and Molly Hannon received the Chapter Jacket Award, which provided GVCS with a free set of chapter jackets valued at close to $600. Derick Grantier and Addison Middaugh played a pivotal role by writing the letter to apply for the award.

A group of GV students competed in an agriculture-themed Quiz Bowl. The team included Trent Hutchison, Derick Grantier, Addison Middaugh, and Kylee Christensen, with Addison Bradt as the alternate. Students also attended a variety of informative workshops which included tours of Highmark Stadium, the NY Power Authority, and Lockwood Greenhouse. Some students dedicated their time to a service project making flower bouquets for local hospitals and nursing homes.

Reflecting on the convention, Carolyn Wright, the FFA Advisor at Genesee Valley, expressed her excitement for the future of the program. “FFA is such a great opportunity for our students, giving them first-hand experience in ag-related careers and building connections with other students from across New York State. I’m looking forward to future FFA trips and activities for our students.”
