Four Tomales FFA members received there State FFA Degrees this year: Lane Norman, Rio Pagliaro, Tiana Minto and Nomar Isais. We also have 3 students competing in the sectional speaking contests this week. Haylee Furlong will be doing the Creed Contest with Jeanette Furlong and Abby Spaletta competing in the Impromtu Speaking Contest. Good luck girls! There is a new scholarship for seniors this year in the Ag Program. The Mendoza Family has created a Joey Mendoza Memorial Scholarship. The application is due on March 24th.
The school garden is moving along slowly. We should be picking up water troughs for the planters next week. No word from the CDE yet on the CTE Incentive grant which will bring in $85,000 each year for 3 years to build the school farm. Our new van has been ordered by the NCAP grant and will arrive over the summer because we are in round 2 of van deliveries.
Last, congrats to Jeanette Furlong for winning the North Coast Region Proficiency in Ag Communications and being slated for Regional Office.
