The Marysville FFA was recently named one of the top 10 chapters in the nation. The chapter, consisting of students in three agriculture programs, including joint partnership with OHP-Marysville FFA chapter, earned this distinction after rising above 7,489 other FFA chapters across the nation.
Ohio Hi-Point agriculture students enrolled in the Satellite program at Marysville High School contributed to several community service and student-led activities that were put into action, assisting in the award-winning journey for the FFA chapter.
The journey began months ago when the program took top honors in the state of Ohio by being named the number one chapter in the entire state in the area of student development.
Students enrolled in Marysville’s agriculture program completed an application and submitted it for evaluation on the level of achievement gained by the chapter over the last year.
National review of the Marysville FFA chapter began in June and concluded a few weeks ago. Marysville was named a National finalist as a “Model of Excellence,” an honor only given to ten chapters nationwide.
Marysville and Ohio Hi-Point students will be traveling to the National FFA Convention in October to discover the chapter’s final ranking. In addition, the students who completed the application will be participating in interviews and presentations.
The Marysville FFA was also named a three star chapter, the highest ranking that the National Association has in recognition of the chapter’s commitment to the students and community.
The Ohio Hi-Point Agriculture Satellite program at Marysville High School is open to any student, freshman through senior. Students will become part of the FFA chapter and develop as leaders while working directly with the community as well as fellow students to host events and complete community service.
