HERMISTON The hours were long and the work was hard, but Chuck Miller and his Future Farmers of America (FFA) members agreed it was worth it.
The FFA state convention attracted about 2,000 people to Hermiston High School (HHS) over the weekend. This week the FFA students and their advisers are taking a well deserved spring break after introducing Hermiston to people from through out the state.
The HHS FFA chapter has more than just tired feet, happy memories and new friends to show for their recent state convention. It also has some new awards to display from members who competed during the convention.
The Ag Issues team won the state championship for the second year in a row. The team includes Kari Boettcher, Chris Aylett, Becky Barton, Pat Keely, Katie Alleman, Rebecca Sullivan and Amanda Ware.
