Tri-Village MVCTC FFA Officers Determined

Tri-Village MVCTC FFA Officers Determined in 2018-2019

Tri-Village MVCTC FFA Officers Determined in 2018-2019 

Determination is the keyword to describe the 2018-2019 Tri-Village MVCTC FFA Officer Team. The team has a rejuvenated drive for excellence and high expectations for the upcoming school year, including a 3-Star National Chapter Award, Top 10 Ohio FFA Chapter, adding Career Development Events to broaden member participation and interests and numerous Proficiency and Degree applications. “It’s such an exciting time in our chapter right now! Our officers are prepared to take new steps towards our big picture goals. One of my biggest personal goals for this year is to grow our involvement within our chapter, we probably have one of the smallest chapters in Ohio, but I really think that agriculture and the FFA can be a staple in this community,” said President Maddie Downing, when asked about her excitement to serve her fellow FFA Members. “This year’s team is pretty young, having just 2 seniors, 2 juniors, 3 sophomores and a freshman but we are all hungry to get started. This will be our 3rd year with Slone (Advisor: Justin Slone) and the chapter has really taken hold of his ideas and expectations, we have all realized why he pushes us and we have grown to want a lot of the same achievements that he wants for us.”

The eight newly elected, Tri-Village MVCTC FFA Officers ventured on their annual 3 day retreat, June 22nd through the 24th, near Lucasville, Ohio. During the Officer Retreat, the team broke down over 30 activities that they will conduct over the upcoming year, set goals for each event and assigned committee’s to direct the efforts to have a successful Program of Activities. The team conducted Team Building, Leadership and Conflict Resolution Workshops to enable them all as individuals to be better equipped to handle obstacles that they will face both within the chapter and their lives, and spent a large amount of time bonding with each other during free time between work sessions.  The team surrendered their electronic devices from 7am to 9pm each day of the retreat to create a more cohesive team by focusing on the goals and purposes of the retreat.

Local County Government Day

Local County Government Day Four Tri-Village students attended the Local County Government Day on April 11th along with students from other county schools.  These students earned credit for attending in their American Government course taught by Mr. Beard.  Beard believes it is important for Tri-Village students to attend local government meetings as a part of their course work so they will be more likely to engage in the system as adults.  The four students attending the County Government Day activity were: Cameron Armstrong, Haven Buckley, Dessirae McCullough, and Grace Moore.
