Every month of the school year the Miami East-MVCTC FFA will select a student to be the FFA Member of the Month.

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.
