The FFA Chapter of Lorain County JVS held its annual banquet on the evening of Tuesday, May 4th. This event celebrates the students’ successes and all of the accomplishments that took place during the past school year.
The JVS FFA Chapter has 59 members and 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 always a great culmination of the year, but especially this year it was so special to be able to have it.
“The seniors were cut short last year, as juniors, in their activities and have missed so much, it is great to be able to have something to wrap up their time here at JVS, as well as celebrate their accomplishments,” Berthold said. “The juniors are also able to take part in this event and it will hopefully motivate them to work hard next year and accomplish all their goals.”
The banquet concluded with the 2021-2022 FFA Officers being announced.
They are as follows: President, Kylee Gill, Landscape and Greenhouse Management junior from Keystone; Vice President, Isaiah Allen, Landscape and Greenhouse Management junior from Clearview; Secretary, Chesnie Pierson, Landscape and Greenhouse Management junior from North Ridgeville; Treasurer, Collin Gill Industrial Equipment Mechanics junior from North Ridgeville; Reporter, Savanna Tleski, Industrial Equipment Mechanics junior from Wellington; Sentinel, Jeremiah Bowen, Landscape and Greenhouse Management junior from Clearview, and Student Advisor, Amy Greene, Landscape and Greenhouse Management junior from Wellington.
