Other activities included FFA Week activities with the chapter hosting KC Wolf to both the Elementary and Junior High/High School campuses. KC Wolf, Dan Meers spoke about the ABCs of Success, Attitude, Behavior and Character. All the students enjoyed his presentation. The chapter officers presented at the elementary classes in various agriculture related topics. Other activities included a scavenger hunt, staff breakfast, drive your tractor to school and a greenhand competition.

In March, we have scheduled the district selection where we will have 4 State Degree applicants and 2 district proficiency applicants. One of the main activities we will have this spring will be the Ag Awareness Day scheduled for Thursday, March 21 at the Melvern Fairgrounds. Elementary students will participate in rotational workshops presented by chapter FFA members. The event is scheduled for 1:30 pm. In April, the MdCV FFA Chapter will host its annual FFA Chapter Banquet held Thursday, April 11 in the Melvern Community Building.

Lastly, we would like to introduce and welcome, Cassandra Ebert, our student teacher for this semester.
