​FFA Team Places 1st in the State

In the middle of the summer, during a pandemic, at 7:00 am, three UVCC students from Fort Loramie made their mark on Ohio FFA. 

These young men participated in the Ag Mechanics and Outdoor Power virtual Career Development Events (CDE). With the online format this year, it took away their favorite component - being hands-on, but they still finished FIRST IN THE STATE.

We also congratulate and thank our instructors and FFA advisors for helping these young men achieve this success - Mr. Matt Pleiman, Fort Loramie satellite Ag Education Instructor and Mr. Dan Schmeising, UVCC Main Campus Ag & Power Technologies Instructor. Well done!
