Three PCPS schools have received the Premier Chapter Award from the Florida FFA Association.

Congratulations to Frostproof, Kathleen and Westwood middle schools!

The Premier Chapter Award recognizes “superior achievement” in school FFA programs; statewide, 58 schools received the honor this year. To be eligible, a school’s FFA chapter must be proficient in areas including alumni and community partnerships, financial planning, public relations, recruitment, and other activities.

“It is no surprise that PCPS has multiple FFA programs being recognized as Premier Chapters,” said Jessica Anderson, an FFA resource specialist for Polk County Public Schools. “These advisors and students excel in all of the criteria required for this honor. I am extremely proud of their efforts and congratulate them on a job well done!”

The Premier Chapter winners will be formally recognized during the 94th Florida FFA Convention and Expo, which will be held next week in Orlando.
