Monday, March 22nd, 2021 5 Pryor students did something that most find a difficult task. These students participated in their first public speaking contest in Vinita, Oklahoma. Students had to write, cite and deliver a 4-8 minute speech with complete memorization and then asked questions over their topic for 5 minutes. They are judged on content, presentation of speech, response to questions and general effect.
Students who participated are
Emily Cowan – 8th grade Explorations – 4th place in her division
Jace Melugin- 8th grade Explorations
Keegan Troyer – 9th grade Opportunities
Bryce Bruch- 9th grade Opportunities

The State FFA Officer Team came to the high school on a Goodwill Tour to talk to students about becoming a leader and a person who does not hide behind a “mask.”
The students got to visit with the officers and play the cornhole game for the evening’s entertainment.

Savannah Sontag and Abbigayle Vargas Receive FFA State Degree
This year two students, Savannah Sontag and Abbigayle Vargas, received their State FFA Degree which is the highest degree student members can receive in high school.
These students had to invest $2,000 in a supervised agricultural experience and then also profit $2,000. They also had to complete 25 hours of community service, maintain participation in various FFA events, and hold a leadership role in the chapter as an officer or on a committee.
Congratulations on this amazing accomplishment!
During FFA Week (February 22-28) Students participated in various activities to help celebrate the week.
Tuesday students and staff were treated to a cookout hosted by the FFA chapter. A meal was provided including hotdogs, hamburgers and hot links. The officer team on Thursday went to the Junior high to recruit younger grades and teach them what FFA had to offer (pictured on the right). Approximately 90 students showed interest. To round out the activities during FFA week the chapter went to church together on Sunday the 28th at Your Place Church (pictured on the left).
