Recently, Ohio FFA State President Shelby Faulkner came to visit the members of the Miami East FFA Chapter. She spent the day in their classroom teaching them about personal values and FFA opportunities with the Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources classes. In the Animal Science classes and the Business Management classes she taught a lesson on using personal strengths but understanding personal weaknesses.

Shelby is taking a year of leave from The Ohio State University where she is majoring in Agricultural Education. She is a graduate of Graham High School and has earned her American FFA Degree. She will spend one year serving the members of the Ohio FFA Association via camps, conferences, and conventions.

Shelby’s visit was a result of the “purchase” of Shelby at the 2012 Ohio FFA Camp Muskingum Children’s Hospital Benefit Auction. The Miami East FFA Chapter made a donation to Children’s of Dayton and Shelby conducted a chapter visit.

The FFA members at Miami East greatly appreciate that Shelby could take time out of her busy life to come and visit with the FFA members at Miami East High School. The Miami East Agricultural Education Department is a satellite program of the Miami Valley Career Technology Center.
