FFA W

HAHIRA — Emily Taylor, an eighth grade student at Hahira Middle School, placed 2nd at the preliminary Creed Speaking Leadership Development Event held yesterday in Echols County. Taylor, who also serves as the president of the Hahira Middle FFA chapter, prepared for the event by memorizing and reciting the FFA Creed.

The Creed was written by E.M. Tiffany, and adopted by the National FFA Organization in 1930. Since then, young students have honed their public speaking skills by reciting the Creed before a panel of judges. Students are judged on their oral speaking skills, poise, gestures, mannerisms, and ability to answer oral questions and reasoning.

Emily will advance to the next level of competition scheduled in mid-February in Appling County.
