Brantley FFA member receives $1,000 grant from National FFA Foundation

$1,000 grant has been awarded to FFA member Cassidy Catrett of Brantley by the National FFA Foundation.

The SAE Grant is designed to help FFA members create and enhance their supervised agricultural experience, a requirement all FFA members must complete. An SAE requires FFA members to create and operate an agriculture-related business, work at an agriculture-related business or conduct an agricultural research experience. Upon completion, FFA members must submit a comprehensive report regarding their career development experience.

Catrett is a member of the Brantley FFA Chapter and was selected from hundreds of applicants nationwide. She was the only one in Alabama to receive this honor.

The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 579,678 student members in grades 7-12 who belong to one of 7,570 local FFA chapters throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

The National FFA Foundation is the fundraising arm of the National FFA Organization.
