The February 2017 Miami East-MVCTC FFA Member of the Month is Keagan Carsey. Keagan is the son of Ryan and Casandra Carsey of Troy. Keagan is a sophomore at Miami East High School and a second year agriculture student enrolled in Plant and Animal Sciences.
Keagan was chosen for his participation in the County Public Speaking Career Development in the area of Extemporaneous Public Speaking. Keagan will compete at the upcoming event by randomly choosing an agriculture topic from a list of agriculture issues, preparing a speech in just 30 minutes, then presenting and answering questions. Keagan also attended the National FFA Convention and was the 2016 Miami County Fair King. Keagan’s Supervised Agricultural Experience includes raising goats, shoring them, and marketing their fiber and a blacksmithing business in which he makes and markets metal works.
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 Agriculture Classroom, and receive a special memento in celebration of their accomplishment.
