The Milton-Union MVCTC-FFA chapter attended Ohio’s State FFA Convention on May 3 and 4, 2018. The Convention was held at the Ohio State Fairgrounds. Members that attended the Convention were Abby Hissong, Jessica Leffew, Jamie Rasor, Tyler Pratt, Jacob Hornberger, Emily Hornberger, Joel Cress, Webb Kress, Tyler Leffew, Taylor Falb, Darby Welbaum, and Emmie Bohse.

On Thursday, May 3, 2018, Abby Hissong competed in the State Agriscience Fair and State Proficiency Award interview process.  Her Agriscience Fair  project, "The Effects of Fungicides on Growth and Yield of Corn and Soybeans” received a Gold Rating and placed second in the State. On Thursday evening, Abby was named State Proficiency WINNER in the Agriscience Research-Plant Systems Category. In October, Abby will compete at the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis.

On Friday, students attended the fourth session where officers who received Gold Ratings were announced.  With Webb Kress receiving the award on his behalf, Chapter Treasurer Daniel Albaugh was recognized with a Gold Rating for his Treasurer’s Notebook, and Chapter Secretary Emily Hornberger received a Gold Rating for her Secretary’s Book.

At the fifth and final session, Milton-Union MVCTC-FFA Members Jessica Leffew, Jacob Hornberger, and Tyler Pratt received their State FFA Degrees.  We were honored to have these members represent our chapter with such a prestigious degree.

As always, our students had a great time, and we look forward to next year’s Ohio State FFA Convention. The Milton-Union MVCTC FFA is proud of all award winners and wishes them best of luck in the future!
