Spring at the Hub
Sanilac ISD students work to develop skills for employment and entrepreneurship by making spring projects for The Hub. Shown above are students from the Secondary Transition Program and ACE Program making chocolate Easter candy from molds and a spring cone wreath.
Cameron McConnachie, a senior from Deckerville, was recently the winner of the State FFA’s Diversified Agriculture Production Entrepreneurship Proficiency Award.
In order to receive this award, Cameron had to use the best management practices available to produce and market a combination of livestock and crops in two or more proficiency areas. These areas include at least one species included in Diversified Livestock and at least one species included in Diversified Crop proficiency area. Cameron’s Supervised Agricultural Experience includes the production of Holstein Beef Cattle, corn, wheat, and soybeans. Cameron farms with his dad and brother. In addition, Cameron rents and farms 115 acres of his own crop land and had begun the acquisition of his own line of equipment. Cameron’s application will now be forwarded onto the National FFA Organization for consideration for National level recognition.
As State winner, Cameron received a check for $250, along with a FFA Carhartt sponsored by Carhartt Inc.
Sanilac FFA Team Winners
The Sanilac FFA Agriculture Issues Team competed at the State FFA Convention held March 5-7, 2014. This year’s team presented the issue of Organic Foods vs. Conventionally Produced Foods: Is There a Difference? Their presentation was designed to highlight the pros and cons associated with the consumption of organically grown foods versus those grown by conventional agriculture technology.
Throughout their presentation, the team designed and presented a skit that portrayed a scene playing out at a local farmer’s market. Customers and farmer’s market vendors played out the scenario of a conversation that debates the positive and negative aspects of different food choices.
The team finished fourth in the state and brought home a gold rating. This is the highest finish for a Sanilac FFA competition team has received in the past five years. In order to qualify for the state event the team had to progress through district, regional and state semi-final rounds. In each of those preliminary rounds the team placed first or second in order to continue to advance. Congratulations Agricultural Issues Team for a job well done!
