TCN FFA recognizes students

By Kelsey Kimbler -

LEWISBURG — On Saturday, March 25, the Tri-County North Miami Valley Career Technology Center (MVCTC) FFA chapter had planned to hold its annual banquet. Unfortunately, members could not hold it in person, but would still like to thank the community, parents, and anyone who has helped over the past year — and recognize hard working members.

“The support of everyone keeps this program moving. We would like to highlight award winners and program supporters,” Advisor Charity Cox said.

Tri-County North MVCTC FFA says “thank you” to the following sponsors that supported the chapter’s FFA banquet:

Platinum Sponsors ($100 and up) — John Landis Pioneer Seeds, Kerri Brown and George Prater, and Joe Conley.

Silver Sponsors ($50-$74.99) — Roger and Kim Gebhart

“If you have not got your donation in and would like to still support you can,” Cox said. “Thank you all so much for your support and helping our chapter grow. It is my pleasure to have the chance to recognize the members for the work that they put forth throughout the year.”

“In this class there are plenty of very skilled students. It was hard to narrow it down to one top student because the knowledge and skills of the students are very high. They bring a lot of at home experience and knowledge to the table,” Cox said.

According to Cox, the award for Star Chapter Farmer goes to the FFA member at the chapter degree level who holds a strong and outstanding SAE.

Other awards

“This year I want to recognize two students that have taken my courses and have been active FFA members for all five years they were here. I want to recognized Marissa Wooton and Delaney Shively with the five year FFA member award. Over the past five years I have seen them put in countless hours of hard work into the program and watched them grow as people! So proud of them,” Cox said.

“The last award I want to give out is my Senior Achievement award. This award goes to a student who over the past year has really worked hard to finish school out on a positive note. I have seen her positive changes and want to recognize her for her hard work! The Senior Achievement Award goes to Caitlyn McCullough.”
