JVS FFA Banquet Honors Accomplishments of Students

The FFA Chapter of Lorain County JVS held its annual banquet on the evening of Thursday, March 21. This event celebrates the students’ successes and all of the accomplishments that took place during the past school year.

With eighty guests and twenty-seven FFA members in attendance, every career development event was announced during the program, as well as the students who participated. The top students in each event were awarded plaques and pins.

Beth Berthold, Landscape and Greenhouse Management Instructor and FFA Advisor, shared that the banquet is significant because throughout the year the students participate in numerous activities and events, and she feels they should be recognized and honored for their involvement in their FFA Chapter. “It is my hope that this banquet shows the students that their contribution has an impact on everyone around them, whether they realize it or not.”

“Many of the events the students participate in gives them the opportunity to be a leader or someone who can make a change in their community,” continued Berthold. “Recognizing this, especially in front of their family and friends, can be the push someone needs to take on a leadership role in other aspects of their life.”

The banquet concluded with the 2019-2020 FFA Officers being announced.

They are as follows: President, Skyler Mshabbek, Landscape and Greenhouse Management junior from North Ridgeville; Vice President, Seth Miller, Landscape and Greenhouse Management junior from Amherst; Secretary, Ky’lynn Miller, Industrial Equipment Mechanics junior from Avon Lake; Treasurer, Wyatt Collins, Industrial Equipment Mechanics junior from Wellington; Reporter, Kaitlyn Stevens, Landscape and Greenhouse Management junior from Elyria; Sentinel, Joshua Morlock, Industrial Equipment Mechanics junior from Columbia, and Student Advisor, Emerald Chimileski, Landscape and Greenhouse Management junior from Keystone.

The National FFA Organization is an extracurricular student organization for those interested in agriculture and leadership.
