    Lorain County JVS 2017 Industrial Equipment Mechanics alumni, Kyle Riggs, was recently presented the 110% Award. This award, sponsored by AgCredit, is available to the three different FFA Chapters in Lorain County.

    This honor is given to the student who has gone above and beyond his/her duties for their chapter and is chosen by the chapter advisor(s).

    Riggs, who currently attends the University of Northwestern Ohio, majoring in Agricultural Equipment/Diesel Technician, shared how his JVS career-tech program and academic courses prepared him for college.

    “Being a part of the JVS and their FFA Chapter helped me realize that this is exactly what I want to be doing for my career. The courses I took prepared me for this next step in my life and also showed me that this isn’t just a hobby, that this is what I like to do and want to do for the rest of my life,” explained Riggs.

    Looking towards the future, Riggs hopes to become an on/off highway equipment road technician.

    Kyle received a certificate and a monetary gift of $50 from AgCredit. AgCredit is a cooperative agricultural lending institution specializing in lending for farms and rural property, as well as improvements and equipment.
