Molalla FFA earns state wins
While piles of students had taken off on Spring Break adventures, last weekend Molalla FFA members were finally attending the 90th annual Oregon State FFA Convention they had spent months preparing for.
In total, 22 members from the chapter went to the convention to compete in various events, and overall the chapter was successful. The Advanced Parliamentary Procedure team, made up of Gavin Barrett, Audrey Andrews, John Cross, Artemy Ivanov, Janiece Moore and Brice Sperl, came away with an impressive 2nd place win in state. In addition, Ivanov earned two individual wins including state star farmer placement and state home and community development proficiency. The home and community development proficiency award was for his work with Share the Love, and he will move onto nationals in this category.
