Washington Great Oaks FFA chapter established at Washington High School
On Aug. 31, students at Washington High School had their first FFA meeting.
The meeting took place in the new agriculture science room. During the meeting, students passed their official chapter name, Washington Great Oaks FFA; adopted a constitution and bylaws; discussed officer elections and upcoming events; and planned their first field trip to the Farm Science Review in London, Ohio.
The following week, seven officers were elected: President Randon Stolzenburg, Vice President Calee Ellars, Secretary Lauren Thompson, Treasurer Jenna Reitmire, Reporter Suzanne Matheny, Sentinel Jarika Mick and Student Adviser Casey Hott.
Once students elected officers and adopted a constitution, the official FFA charter application was complete and submitted to the Ohio FFA Association. On Sept. 18 the Washington Great Oaks FFA chapter was officially chartered and is now able to process membership.
The chapter has approximately 90 students enrolled in the program. The chapter will be led by Aaron Miller, a Hillsboro FFA alumnus.
Washington Great Oaks FFA is a satellite program of Great Oaks Career Campuses. Its mission as an organization is “FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.”
