MVCTC FFA Students Attend Young Leaders Conference

Lily Preston, Tri-Village, receives scholarship

Miami Valley Career Technology Center (MVCTC) FFA Chapter has a primary goal to follow the National FFA Mission, which is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for career success through agricultural education and Career Development Events.

The Veterinary Science Seniors recently went to the Young Leaders Conference sponsored by The Ohio State University and Alpha Gamma Rho and Sigma Alpha.  The purpose of the 2020 Young Leaders Conference is to provide a unique opportunity for students to improve their leadership skills, experience professional development, and advance communication abilities.  These are just a few of the fundamental qualities that the conference works on developing to help the students succeed in their future endeavors.  A variety of Ohio State University faculty and industry professionals came in to present to the students.  The students gained a better sense of how to become a leader in the agricultural world.

All Senior Veterinary Science MVCTC FFA members attended three sessions with experts and then listened to the keynote speaker: Mr. Micah Mensing.  Before attending the conference, all students wrote a scholarship essay to be considered for one of two scholarships presented.  Lily Preston, from partner school Tri-Village, was the deserving recipient of this year’s scholarship presented by Sigma Alpha.  The $500.00 was presented for her response to an essay questions about the Future of Agriculture.

The National FFA Organization (formerly known as Future Farmers of America) provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education.  Today, there are over 579,678 FFA members in grade seven through twelve who belong to one of over 7,570 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

  1. An interesting and useful event. It may also be useful for schoolchildrens or prospective students. I myself often attend such conferences. I understand that it’s interesting to the audience. Following such conferences may be, or may be a compulsory assignment for students, such as an essay or story about a attended event, to secure material. Writing a classy, ​​literate, and elegant essay that is highly regarded will require a lot of time and relevant skills. I, in turn, recommend a resource for reviewing essay writing sites – review about writing service . The site is cool, and now I’ll answer in a few words why. It describes the general information about the resource, the price segment, the evaluation of the criteria that are of interest to you for general understanding and conclusions and recommendations. All the best! Try it!
