On October 2nd, the Anthony Wayne FFA was fortunate to be a part of a video for the Ohio Department of Education. The purpose was to create an iAmFFA video featuring some of our very own Anthony Wayne FFA members. The video crew followed the veterinary science, biotechnology, and plant science classes to observe and video the everyday activities in those classes.
Several members were also individually interviewed. Drake Moore, Spencer Burtscher, Troy Schalitz, Carmyn Buskey, and Kalie Anderson were all given an opportunity to be a movie star. When asked about his interview, Troy said, “It was pretty interesting. I really want to learn more about what they do.” The video crew asked the students to talk about their SAEs and how they will impact their future careers. Also, they asked the students what they would say to a member who was on the fence about joining FFA. All of the answers seemed to be very similar: “Do it!” It is a great opportunity that could open so many doors for you later in life.
After the interview was conducted, the camera man wanted to get a shot of the baby chicks using his camera mounted to a drone. He was able to video tape the chicks and the Anthony Wayne High School campus. All in all, the educational video will be interesting when we see all the shining faces of our very own FFA members on the big screen.
