Local FFA member receives $1,000 grant from National FFA Foundation

A $1,000 grant has been awarded to FFA member Liam Sammons of St Johnsville, NY, by the National FFA Foundation.  The SAE Grant is designed to help FFA members create and enhance their supervised agricultural experience (SAE), a requirement that all FFA members must complete. An SAE requires FFA members to create and operate an agriculture-related business, work at an agriculture-related business or conduct an agricultural research experience. Upon completion, FFA members must submit a comprehensive report regarding their career development experience.

Sammons is a member of the Mohawk Valley FFA Chapter and was selected from hundreds of applicants nationwide.  A complete list of recipients can be seen here.
