Local FFA Member Receives Grant from AmerisourceBergen Foundation.
A $1,000 National FFA SAE grant has been awarded to James Laughlin of Waynesville, Mo., by the AmerisourceBergen Foundation.
SAE grants are designed to help FFA members create or expand Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) projects, a requirement that 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.
His application was selected from among 1,296 applications nationwide. This year 30 different sponsors funded SAE Grants. A full list of sponsors can be found on the National FFA Organization website on the SAE Grants webpage.
Laughlin is a member of the Waynesville FFA Chapter, which meets in the Waynesville Career Center. His agriculture instructor is Emily Koch.
