Mount Vernon FFA receives Top Chapter Award
COLUMBIA, Mo., April 21, 2022 – The Missouri FFA Association awarded Mount Vernon FFA Chapter a Gold Emblem, a Top Chapter Award. Mount Vernon placed 6th out of 351 chapters. Only 10 percent of state chapters receive a top chapter designation each year. The Mount Vernon FFA advisors are Steven Prewitt, Jay Shepherd and Makayla Berheim. The top chapters compete for the National FFA Chapter Award. Winners will be announced this fall at the 95th National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis. This award is sponsored by FCS Financial.
The National Chapter Award Program is designed to recognize FFA chapters that actively implement the mission and strategies of the organization. These chapters improve chapter operations using the National Quality Chapter Standards and a Program of Activities that emphasize growing leaders, building communities and strengthening agriculture. Chapters are rewarded for providing educational experiences for the entire membership.

The FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
