Farmers Group Names Southern High Student 'Shining Star'
The Future Farmers of America (FFA) honors Brooke Catterton for her excellence in leadership and agricultural science.
A Southern High student leader recently received national recognition from Future Farmers of America for excellence in leadership and in the school’s agricultural science program, according to Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS).
Brooke Catterton, a junior and vice president of Southern High’s chapter of Future Farmers of America (FFA), was selected as one of the “Six FFA Shining Stars” by Wrangler Jeans and New Horizons magazine. The teen displays excellence in leadership and is a strong role model for others, AACPS said.
“To be recognized by New Horizons is quite an honor for me, but true recognition belongs to our growing FFA organization and agricultural science program, which has provided a great opportunity for me and many of my classmates,” Catterton said.
New Horizons magazine is a publication produce by the FFA, focusing on careers and news in the agricultural history. Catterton is set to be featured in the magazine’s winter edition.
Southern High Principal Marc Procaccini said he echoed Catterton’s words, saying the award honors her individual leadership as well as the work executed by the agricultural science program as a whole.
