North Region Community Service    

 We are excited to announce that this year’s North Region community service project will be a benefit drive for The Sparrows Nest, a christian ministry center located in Athens, GA. Their mission is to seek to change lives through the power of God and nurturing relationships. By creatively meeting the needs of a population at risk, they build trust, which is the doorway to hope and transformation. The items collected for this year’s community service project will be collected at the 2018 North Region Rally (September 6th-7th). The winner will be determined by adding the weight of the socks and underwear to half the weight of the hygiene items. For example, if your chapter brings 40 pounds of hygiene items and 35 pounds of socks and underwear, then the final weight will be 55 pounds. We look forward to each of you participating and an informational flyer and letter can be found below:

North Region Teacher Spotlight    

Ms. LaDonna Withrow comes to North Region after two years at Jackson High School in Central Region. Ms. Withrow was chosen to open the brand new program at Bear Creek Middle School in Fulton County. Bear Creek is the first Middle School program in Fulton County. Ms. Withrow attended Riverdale High School where she was a student of Ms. Sabrina Davis. From there she attended Fort Valley State University majoring in Agricultural Education with a Minor in Horticulture. Ms. Withrow's favorite FFA activity is attending FFA Summer Leadership Camp with her students. "I enjoy watching the students become active in FFA. The students get the best experiences through SLC because they see the leadership, teamwork, and dedication that people have for the FFA". Ms. Withrow believes that "all students should be provided with those experiences that can help them to become leaders, team members, and professionals as they progress in education". We welcome Ms. Withrow to North Region and look forward to watching her program at Bear Creek encourage the expansion of additional Middle School programs in Fulton County.
