At the 2016 National FFA Convention Kylie and Jessica participated in the National Agriscience Fair with their Environmental Sciences/Natural Resources Systems project entitled, “Does Clean Water Mean Clean Soil? A Comparative Study of Townships In Miami County, Ohio.” The team qualified for the national competition after placing first in the state competition in May 2017. The team placed sixth in the nation and earned a gold rating.
Every month of the school year the Miami East-MVCTC FFA will select a student to be the FFA Member of the Month. The officer team will nominate one student that has been actively involved in the FFA chapter, school and community activities. If selected, the member will be recognized at the monthly FFA meeting, have their picture displayed in the Miami East Ag Room, and will receive a special accolade in celebration of their accomplishment.
