Walton FFA students honored during state convention

This year’s New York State FFA convention has gone virtual and Walton CSD students took part and were honored. 

Students participated in workshops, tours, serving as delegates in the business meetings/committee meetings, and watching sessions where awards were announced and guest speakers had presentation.

The convention is taking part over two weeks. The first set of sessions is completed and Walton students will be honored on two more days – May 12 and May 16.
