Parliamentary Procedure Team places in Top 20

Dec. 16, the Black River FFA participated in the Novice State Parliamentary Procedure Career Development Event at The Ohio State University. The Parliamentary Procedure competition is an assessment of a student’s ability to participate effectively in a business meeting or other group decision making situations. The team performs in a FFA mock-type meeting for a panel of judges. In addition, each member must also complete a written evaluation containing questions that test their knowledge on the rules of parliamentary procedure.

This year’s Junior Team included Parliamentary President, Alexa Shearer; Vice President, Molly Cordonnier; Secretary, Chloee Howard; Treasurer, Jared Bradford; Sentinel, Kaitlyn Long; Reporter, Amanda Mycek; Student Advisor, Hope Diaz; Member, Joe Mennell and alternate Kiersten Hendershot. The team earned a commendable 12th place state title and gold rating. The team’s top-20 placing was quite an accomplishment as this was the first time competing in the event for all of the members, and the first time Black River has had a team compete in the state event. The members would like to thank Black River Superintendent Chris Clark for his assistance in helping to prepare the team.
