This year Mohawk had two proficiency award winners.  Lindsay Daniel won 1st in district and 2nd in state for her proficiency in Veterinary Medicine.  Donovan Smith also won 1st in district and 1st in state for his proficiency in Environmental Science and Natural Resources Management.  Emily Daniel received her State Degree and a Gold Rating for her Reporter’s book. Lindsay Daniel received a Gold Rating for her Treasurer’s Book. Mohawk FFA received a Gold Medal Chapter rating.

Perhaps the best news to report is the announcement of the 2013-2014 Ohio FFA State Officers.  Jarred Shellhouse’s hard work and dedication to FFA was evident when he was announced as the Ohio FFA State Treasurer.  This is a tremendous achievement and a great honor.

This was a great year for the Mohawk FFA Chapter, all attending Members grow at this year’s Ohio FFA State Convention. Some members grew by learning something new at the convention. Others grew by making new long lasting memories.  The convention was a great time of growing, learning and memories.
