Puerto Rico FFA Project
The Northern Bedford FFA collected items for Puerto Rico FFA from January 27th to February 7th. Personal care items were collected to help with the relief project after the earthquakes that destroyed the island. We collected a total of 767 items with an original goal of 500. Fifteen students attended ACES in Harrisburg where the collected items were taken. The Pennsylvania FFA gathered all donated items and shipped them to Puerto Rico.

Students at Northern Bedford County High School were recently introduced to The Challenge Program, Inc. during a kick-off assembly at their school. The assembly theme was Future Influencers: #WhyNotMe. This fun assembly featuring a powerful video outlining how the Program works, reveals to students the positive outcomes to the important choices they make every day for career-readiness and success both in and beyond the classroom and how to earn cash incentives.
During the assembly, students in the sophomore, junior, and senior classes were introduced to local career opportunities. Throughout the year, they will be eligible to compete for financial awards in five areas linked with academic and workplace success: Attendance, Academic Improvement, Academic Excellence, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and Community Service. The business partner for Northern Bedford County High School during the 2019-2020 school year is Corle Building Systems.
At the end of the assembly, five juniors and five seniors from Northern Bedford County High School received awards for the work they accomplished last year during the 2018-2019 school year in the five above-mentioned categories, sponsored by Corle Building Systems.
