L->R: Kelsey Gugel, Brooke Napolitano, and Shayleigh Pugh are all smiles after placing in the Top 10 at the FEA National Leadership Conference

MINNEAPOLIS- Students in the Ohio Hi-Point chapter of the Future Educators Association competed at the National FEA Leadership Conference in Minneapolis, MN earlier this month.

Kelsey Gugel, Brooke Napolitano, and Shayleigh Pugh represented Ohio Hi-Point Career Center Teaching Professions in the Service Learning Project Presentation, achieving a top ten placement in the nation.

Competing against 34 other states, the team described how teachers use service learning to meet standards and student achievement goals.  They described three of the projects students completed and then used “backwards planning” to align the activities with the Teaching Professions standards.

Service projects included the Military Appreciation Boards, which are being developed at Marysville, Graham and Urbana High School. They also explained the fundraiser for supplies for the Hope Center and the Teacher Resource Room at Marysville High School.


In addition to the competition, the members also participated in a number of valuable presentations on best teaching practices and featured speakers, such as Jeff Charbonneau, the National Teacher of the Year.

The Ohio Hi-Point FEA students are part of the Teaching Professions satellite program at Marysville High School. The satellite program is a partnership between the career center and the partner districts to bring career-technical education to high school students in the partner high schools.
