The Wilmington FFA Chapter recently held its annual Greenhand Night at Wilmington High School to welcome over 15 new members.

FFA Advisor Ms. Cooper and the chapter officers welcomed the Greenhands and their families to the program with an introduction of what it means to be in FFA.

They then dispersed into four different groups: Ms.Cooper and Kensey Parker taught the members more about FFA and its morals; Devon Snyder and Dirk Rinehart taught about Supervised Agricultural Experiences (SAE); Bella Early and Jaden Snyder talked about Career Development Events (CDE); and Emmie Danku and Hunter Wood taught about the FFA Official Dress. Members played a game for them to learn proper, official dress.

To wrap up the night, the Greenhand members painted their hands and placed them on the wall to show they are a Greenhand.

The Wilmington FFA Chapter is excited for the upcoming school year and to add these new members to our membership roster. photo photo
