7 CCHS FFA students earn certification

MOULTRIE — Seven Colquitt County  FFA members’ long hours of practice paid off as they took home their Georgia Green Industry Junior Certification.  

The Georgia Green Industry Junior Certification program consists of a written exam and plant identification practicum.

The written test is based on the educational objectives of the Georgia Agriculture Education horticulture pathway curriculum and standard practices in the horticulture industry.  To pass the written exam, a student must answer 35 questions correctly.

The second portion of the certification is plant identification. Fifty plants will be displayed for students to identify.

The Junior Plant Certification exam is given twice a year and administered by Georgia Green Industry professionals. This year’s first testing was held in conjunction with the 2013 Winter Green Conference at the Gwinnett Convention Center in Duluth.

Upon arrival, students prepared and attempted the rigorous certification testing. The students spent the remaining hours of the day attending career educational sessions, followed by the opportunity to meet and talk with more than 100 horticulture industry representatives.

The purpose of the junior certification is to connect students with Georgia Green Industry linking classroom instruction directly to real life. Additionally the certification process establishes guidelines for academic achievement and competence while promoting students in the future of the horticulture industry.  

To date, Georgia FFA has 121 students who have passed all requirements for Junior GGIA certification. Additionally numerous FFA members have passed a significant part of the testing and have plans to complete their certification at the state FFA Convention in April.

Instructors and chapter advisors for the team are Adrienne Smith and Chad Bass.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
