Nine members from the Edon FFA Chapter received free FFA jackets from the Beck’s Blue Jacket Program through the Ohio FFA Association this year. The Beck’s Blue Jacket Program allows first-year FFA members in the eighth, ninth or 10th grade to earn a free FFA jacket.
To receive a jacket, each member had to write an essay and complete at least one leadership activity. The Edon FFA members who earned these jackets were Garrett Skiles, Kalon Weaver, Caden Nester, Garrett Dowdy, Kaden Mosher, Maddison Gearig, MacKenzie Spangler, Levi Favourite and Brianna Herr.
This year the jackets were sponsored by Rollie Wolfrum from Hicksville. These students are excited to use their jackets when they participate in conferences, conventions and contests with the Edon FFA Chapter.
