Student leaders from the Westminster High School FFA Chapter attended the 92nd Maryland FFA Convention, held virtually through Facebook and YouTube, from June 23-26, 2020. During the event, members from the chapter were recognized for their achievements.
Westminster High School FFA 2020 graduate Avery Dull was recognized for her achievements in FFA, Agricultural Education, and Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) through three awards. First, Avery was awarded GOLD in Diversified Livestock Production Placement Proficiency to recognize her accomplishments in her various Placement SAEs. Her award application will be forwarded to National FFA for review and entry into national competition in the fall.
Second, Avery escalated to the Maryland FFA State Degree, the highest level of membership in Maryland, earned by less than 10% of FFA members in the state.
Finally, Avery was named the Maryland FFA State Star in Agricultural Placement, the highest achievement in Maryland for FFA members with SAE programs that include work-study in paid and unpaid internships. Avery will represent Westminster High School and Maryland in a regional stars competition, held virtually in the fall, in conjunction with the Big E in Massachusetts.
Avery is the third consecutive Maryland FFA State Star to emerge from the Westminster High School FFA program, preceded by Henry Brunnett in 2018 and Lesa Ramsburg in 2019.
Through the course of the virtual event, FFA members were encouraged to “Ignite” their leadership potential, by the Maryland FFA State officer team. The Westminster FFA chapter is a leadership development organization affiliated with the Westminster High School Agricultural Education program.
