Ohio State Superintendent Visits Anthony Wayne FFA Chapter

Submitted by Haley Schmersal, Anthony Wayne FFA Reporter, on January 18, 2017

On Friday, January 6th, state superintendent Paolo DeMaria visited the Anthony Wayne High School Agricultural Education program. The purpose of this visit was to inform Mr. DeMaria about the many benefits of agricultural education, and all of the opportunities it has given the students at Anthony Wayne. The officer team prepared a presentation about all of the things our chapter offers including the diverse classes, activities and career development events throughout the year, and the skills that students gain by becoming an FFA member. It was an honor to have Mr. DeMaria select our chapter to gain a better understanding of FFA and agricultural education in Ohio as a whole. Louis Pawliski, a member of the FFA, said “It was great seeing that the community outside of agriculture is starting to take an interest in it and it was fun for us to be able to show our projects that we spend a lot of time on.”
