Every year the Hillsboro FFA Chapter recognizes a group of individuals who have excelled in their Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) projects with a proficiency award at the annual FFA Banquet. Proficiency awards are based on a member’s SAE project.
The award recognizes individual skills and career-based competencies developed through multiple years of participation in immersion-type SAE projects. This year’s proficiency award winners included: Ag Communications Award, Riley Stratton; Ag Education Award, Kelcie Thornburgh; Ag Processing Award, Brayden Cochran; Ag Sales Award, Zamaryah Thompson; Ag Services Award, Gavin Puckett; Beef Production Award, Lawton Parry; Diversified Livestock Award, Serena Humphrey; Forage Production Award, Clara Page; Forestry Management & Swine Production Award, Mallory Parsons; Goat Production Award, Chloe Page; Service Learning Award, Lexie Swayne; Small Animal Production & Poultry Production Award, Alexandra Crago; Specialty Animal Award, Erin Hedges; Turf Grass Management Award, Zachary Carter; Vegetable Production Award, Jada Davis; and Wildlife Production Award, Ben Remsing.
These students have worked very hard through the projects they completed and they have learned very valuable skills for their futures.
