FTHS Students Serve as State Delegates at National FFA Convention

Six FFA (Future Farmers of America) members from Freehold Township High School’s Animal and Botanical Sciences Magnet Program were invited to represent New Jersey at the 95th National FFA Convention. The six members qualified for the Parliamentary Procedure Event at the New Jersey FFA Convention in May.

Students must demonstrate the ability to run a meeting using Roberts Rules of Order. Participants are judged on their knowledge of parliamentary law and their ability to present logical, realistic, and convincing debates and motions. They are also given a comprehensive test on parliamentary law, preparing agendas and recording minutes. The members must also complete a collaborative problem-solving scenario.

The event is known as the "Super Bowl" of FFA public speaking events. The Freehold Township team earned a Bronze rating. All members of the team also earned a membership for the next thirty years in the American Institute of Parliamentarians. 

The student representatives were Dallas Blair, Danish Hussain, Kayla Martinez, Cassandra Neuhaus, Breanna Rosmarin, and Scarlett Sampino.
