LEWISBURG — On Friday, Sept. 13, the Tri-County North Miami Valley Career Technology Center (MVCTC) FFA Chapter took a team of eight members to Gratis to compete in the spring CDE Soil Judging. Their rural soil judging team placed first out of all Preble County schools.
Soil judging is an opportunity to learn what landscapes are best for farming, architecture, and or woodland reservations. TCN chapter members had a successful time.
The team consisted of senior: Delaney Shively; junior: Samantha Nuse; sophomores: Kelli Cooke, Kylie Cooper, Hunter Pahl and Ellycia Kazee; and the freshmen: Owen Shively and Joey Harris.
The Tri-County North MVCTC FFA chapter members would like to thank the surrounding county chapters’ advisors for helping oversee the competition. They would also like to thank The Preble Soil and Water staff members for holding the contest and giving agricultural students the opportunity to learn hands-on.
