The Bowling Green FFA Chapter was once again named a "Gold Emblem Chapter" at the 85th Ohio FFA Convention. This award recognizes the top 30 percent of FFA Chapters out of 325 chapters in the state.
The chapter also was recognized as a Top 10 Chapter in Chapter Development. The chapter members submit an application and put together a presentation about the chapter's activities to be included in this elite group. BG was also recognized on stage for their charitable donations to The Children's Miracle Network and CROP/Church World Services. Three BG FFA officers were recognized among the state's best during one of the convention sessions. Amanda Barndt, Natalie Carpenter, and Ben Wilhelm were recognized with gold medals for their outstanding books and record keeping skills. The 15-member delegation from Bowling Green also heard from motivational speakers and attended the career show during the convention. There also was time for fun Thursday night when members went out to eat and participated in go-carting, laser tag, and miniature golf.
Two BG FFA member's pictures will be added to the State FFA Degree Wall in the classroom for 2013. Ben Wilhelm and Alex Wynn received their State FFA Degree at the final session of State Convention Friday night. This is the highest degree the state of Ohio can award a FFA member. It recognizes outstanding Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) projects, FFA achievements and activities, school and community activities, and scholarship. Less than two percent of all FFA members will ever receive this honor.
Wilhelm is the son of Stan and Lisa Wilhelm of Custar. His SAE consisted of job placement on the family farm and raising and selling market hogs. Wilhelm served as treasurer of the chapter last year and is currently serving as president. He is involved in many CDEs including Soil Judging, Food Science, Ag Mechanics, and Poultry Judging.
Wynn is the son of Bill and Lois Wynn of Bowling Green. His SAE consisted of job placement at Wenig's and Lime's Family Farms as well as farming 15 acres of land. Wynn is currently serving as treasurer for the chapter and has been involved in the Soils, Ag Sales, Outdoor Power Equipment, and Parliamentary Procedure CDEs.
The chapter is proud of these hardworking and accomplished individuals.
