Anthony Wayne FFA Members Make School History
During the week of October 18th-22nd, six Anthony Wayne FFA members attended National Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana and made school history. While at National Convention, the Agricultural Communications career development event team consisting of Marleigh Kerr, Jacob Gase, and Drake Moore placed 8th in the country and earned a gold rating.This was the first Anthony Wayne FFA career development event team to compete at the national level. The team members completed two communication quizzes, a written paper, three practicums, and a team presentation event. The Anthony Wayne team focused their communication team event on Whitehouse Specialty Crops, which is owned by Wade Smith.
Anthony Wayne FFA also had three agriscience fair participants. Hailey Velker and Sumner Lonseth placed 2nd in the country in Plant Systems Division 4 and Claire Sample placed 8th in Social Systems Division 2. Sumner and Hailey tested the correlation between seed storage temperature and seed germination rate, while Claire evaluated the correlation between student organization membership and community service involvement amongst Anthony Wayne High School students. These students were the first ever Anthony Wayne FFA members to earn gold ratings and place in the agriscience fair at the national level.
While at National Convention, Cody Perry, Kathryn Barney, and Willy Lemle, three Anthony Wayne High School graduates, also received their American FFA Degrees. This is the highest degree bestowed upon members by the National FFA Organization.
