Please join us in congratulating the following students for their success competing in the recent State FFA Career Development Events: The Agricultural Mechanics team consisting of George Curreri, Charlie Kitchen, Bryan Sams, and Trevor Skow placed 2nd in the State!!! They were just points behind the school taking first and ranked above other schools with corporate sponsored mechanic and welding shops offering multiple year cerification programs. Many of these students are seniors and have plans to continue their professional training at nearby technical institutions. They will be recognized on stage at the State FFA convention and receive scholarships from the University of Northwestern Ohio. Individually, George Curreri placed 4th in the State and Trevor Skow placed 6th in the State among the top ten agriculture mechanics students.

These students have studied Floriculture this year, participating in the State FFA Flower Show, helping with bouquet construction for the Spring Musical and now holistically applying what they have learned about the science, business and technology of floristry and floriculture crop production. Gerri placed 11th in the State individually.

Classroom Corner

Students in Ms. Serzan's high school English class made Two-Page Spreads based on the poems they read in class. Students had to select one line from each poem that spoke to them and them create a visual representation of how those lines made them feel. The students did an excellent job on a very difficult subject.
