    The FFA Chapter of Lorain County JVS recently held its annual banquet to celebrate the school year, the students’ successes and all of the accomplishments that took place.

    With eighty guests and forty FFA members in attendance, every career development event was announced during the program, as well as the students who participated. The top students in each event were awarded plaques and pins.

    Beth Berthold, Landscape and Greenhouse Management Instructor and FFA Advisor, shared how important this event is to the FFA members. “As the year is unfolding, the students don’t always see or understand how important the contributions of their FFA chapter are, and the impact it has on the community.”

    “This banquet allows the students to look back on the year and see all of their accomplishments. This event is planned and managed by the students and it is great to see it from the drawing board to its final stage,” continued Berthold.

    The banquet concluded with the 2018-2019 FFA Officers being announced.

    They are as follows: President, Sydney Collier, Landscape and Greenhouse Management junior from Clearview; Vice President, William Keller, Landscape and Greenhouse Management junior from Midview; Secretary, Michael McDonald, Industrial Equipment Mechanics junior from Keystone; Treasurer, Thomas Keller, Landscape and Greenhouse Management junior from Midview; Reporter, Savannah Roby, Landscape and Greenhouse management junior from Wellington; Sentinel, Nicholas Borlaug, Industrial Equipment Mechanics junior from North Ridgeville and Student Advisor, Aidan Marang, Industrial Equipment Mechanics junior from Keystone.

    Outgoing JVS FFA Chapter President, Kaitlyn Lemaster, Industrial Equipment Mechanics senior from Amherst, shared some final words at the close of the evening. “It is an honor to be an officer in the FFA. From time to time during the year, you may encounter difficult problems, but through cooperation, hard work, and dedication, you will succeed. Seek harmony among your fellow officers, and set high standards of leadership for all chapter members.”

    The National FFA Organization is an extracurricular student organization for those interested in agriculture and leadership.
