The Milford FFA Chapter brought 23 students to participate in the 92nd Delaware FFA State Convention that was held at Delaware State Fairgrounds on March 8th-9th, 2022. Milford FFA students competed against over 700 other FFA members from all across the state in Career Development Events, Leadership Development Events as well as were involved in leadership workshops and community service projects while attending the convention.

Hannah Haigh was elected to serve as a 2022- 2023 Delaware FFA State Officer in the role of State Sentinel. Hannah is our current FFA Chapter President and has competed in countless FFA events, community service opportunities and contests. As a Delaware FFA State Officer, Hannah will be traveling across the state working with more than 4,000 Delaware FFA members in facilitating workshops and advocating for our organization and agricultural education. Hannah is the first Delaware State Officer from Milford FFA in 12 years!

Four FFA members from Milford FFA were awarded their Delaware FFA State Degree which requires FFA members to participate in a wide variety of state and chapter FFA events, complete at least two agriculture classes, and take part in over 25 hours of community service. The following Milford FFA members received this high award; Natalie Armstrong, Beau Davis, Hannah Haigh and Sundene Lodge.

Miranda Walker, a 2021 graduate of Milford received approval to continue to submit her application to receive her American FFA Degree from the National FFA Organization. As the highest degree achievable in the National FFA Organization, the American FFA Degree shows an FFA member’s dedication to his or her chapter and state FFA association. We wish Miranda good luck as she submits her application to the National FFA and Organization.

Alexis Wright from the Milford FFA served as the Nominating Committee member for the Delaware FFA Association State Officer Selection Committee. She was tasked with spending countless hours interviewing and listening to State Officer Candidates and selected the 2022-2023 Delaware FFA State Officers. Thank you Alexis for your hard work at the convention!
