Henryetta FFA awarded grant

Free-Lance Editor

Henryetta FFA Chapter recently applied for and received a Living to Serve grant in the amount of $1,200 from the National FFA Organization, said Cody Dawson, Henryetta FFA Advisor.

Living to Serve grants provide an opportunity for FFA chapters and state FFA associations to seek funding to support various types of service projects through a competitive application process. 

The grant will be used by the Henryetta FFA for a semester-long service-learning project to help restore Nichols Park. 

“We have a semester full of activities and educational workshops that will be happening at Nichols Park,” Dawson said.

In order to be considered for a grant from the National FFA Organization, applicants must identify a community need that falls within one of the four following focus areas: Community Safety; Hunger, Health and Nutrition; Environmental Responsibility and Community Engagement.

Henryetta FFA Chapter continues to work with the community in order to make a positive difference.

In January, the Henryetta Chamber of Commerce presented a Youth Development Award to the chapter.

Seventy-five members strong, the newly established Henryetta FFA chapter has faced many challenges but continues to persevere and remain enthusiastic through their journey.
