Pymatuning Valley FFA Well Represented at the FFA National Convention

On October 29 through November 1 several PV FFA members attended the National FFA Convention in Louisville, KY.  Members received the chance to attend various leadership workshops including some led by National FFA officers.  Members also attended various sessions and heard some very inspirational speeches from key speakers.  On Saturday, members watched two of their own receive their National FFA Degrees.  Receiving the degrees were Tyler Gruskiewicz and Jessica Krulic. Tyler is currently a student at the Ohio State University, and Jessica is a student at Hiram College. This is a great honor because both the chapter and state degrees must be earned before obtaining the national degree.  Both members put in lots of time and effort to receive this honor, the degree representing dedication, motivation, and respect for the industry of agriculture.  Members attending the convention included Katie Stokes, Jeston Yeater, Tyler Dunbar, Austin Kinter, Kayla Howland, Adrianna Brenizer, Adele Bogardus, and Jackson Bogardus.

On October 9th six chapter members attended the District 3 officer training located at the Trumbull County Technical Center.  Members received individual assistance on the duties of their office, and advice on how to excel in their given position.  A state officer also attended the event, who taught various leadership and teamwork skills through different activities.  Members received the opportunity to meet members from various chapters in the district, and to learn skills to benefit the chapter.

The officers for the Pymatuning Valley FFA attended an over night officer training at Ohio FFA Camp Muskingum.  The program worked on initiatives for building team work.  The 16 officers worked on getting to know each other dealing with strengths and weaknesses they have and how to blend into a strong officer team.  They also did a low ropes program that concentrated on communication including listening.  Fun was had by all besides learning to work together.  They are looking forward to leading the PV FFA chapter into a national gold rating.
