FFA Membership Growth Award

STMA has just received the 2014 FFA Membership Growth Award from the regional leadership of the Future Farmers of America! Congratulations to all students in the FFA–STMA’s largest club–and to FFA sponsor Kate Kirkpatrick!

STMA’s FFA students continue to put into practice their 2014-15 competitive “Food For All” grant. This grant funds three experiential learning projects in agriculture that concretely address local hunger. These projects have already substantially increase STMA’s charitable giving from its garden and provide enhanced educational opportunities for both students and adults. The FFA club has cooperated with several local organizations this fall in both seasonal harvests and a local educational workshop in Wake Forest. Another workshop is planned for November at St. Raphael’s in Raleigh. Support goes out to STMA’s FFA as it brings the grant’s benefits to the school, its students, and our neighboring communities!
