FFA sends eight of nine teams on to district competition

Sheffield, Iowa -National FFA Weeks is winding to its close and for several of the Charles City members they reflect on their experiences through the organization.

On Monday, the chapter announced seven Iowa Degree recipients.  Madee Tjaden who is part of 3 percent of Iowa FFA members who receive this degree calls the award prestigious and the time she spent precious.

He says he's good at karaoke but we think otherwise. ;) In his free time, he enjoys beginning new projects at home and hardly ever finishing them.
