Sandoval FFA Represented by Scottie Pryor at FFA Creed Speaking Event.

Sandoval FFA Chapter was recently represented by Scottie Pryor at the Section 21 FFA Creed Speaking event. The event was hosted by the Kaskaskia College Agriculture/Horticulture program. The Creed Speaking competition is designed to recognize outstanding FFA members for their ability to present the National FFA Creed in a competitive setting. Members deliver the creed from memory and respond to three questions. The event gives FFA members the opportunity to develop their ability to communicate in a powerful, organized and professional manner. Pryor was coached by Sandoval FFA Advisor Casey Bolin.

This event is one of many educational activities in which FFA members practice the lessons learned in agricultural education classes. Creed speaking is a great opportunity to get younger FFA members excited about FFA and public speaking through a competitive event. This competition helps to lay the groundwork for good public presentation skills that students will use for the rest of their lives.
