STMA Student and Teacher Win FFA Grants!

Congratulations to STMA sophomore Liliane Watkins, who has been awarded a competitive SAE/Career Pathways Grant by the National Future Farmers of America! Miss Watkins was selected from hundreds of applicants nationwide and was one of just two students in the state of North Carolina to win the award. She will use the grant to conduct a self-designed agricultural research experience in coordination with the California Certified Organic Foundation.

Congratulations also to Kate Kirkpatrick, humanities instructor and FFA sponsor, who has been awarded a Future Farmers of America “Food for All Grant,” her second grant in two years!
