95th National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis

Last week the Severance FFA Chapter took 18 members to celebrate the 95th National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis alongside 65,000 other FFA members. These members spent their week learning from leaders, celebrating the accomplishments of agriculture education students from across the country, experiencing new types of agriculture (orchards and urban farms), and enjoyed a great bonding experience or two. The convention is all about growing the next generation of leaders. We took a variety of members from freshman to senior and first year members to members of our local officer team! Students found inspiration and direction to become a leader and influencer, ready to make an impact. During this event, students found out who they are, who they want to become and how they can change how the world grows. We can't wait to go back next year!

Girls Volleyball head off to Regionals!

Looking for your feedback!

  • Please provide feedback on our SILVER acronym by taking this short PARENT survey or STUDENT survey.
  • What are your thoughts on creating an "Honor those that Serve" or "Freedom Wall" at SHS? This idea is similar to the "Freedom Shrine" in the main entrance at Windsor Middle School, and can be a way that Severance High School honors those that serve, i.e military, police, firefighters. This project is being lead by student leaders in our Leadership class as part of our upcoming Veteran's Day activities. Please share any feedback through this form.
