FFA Member of the Month named

CASSTOWN — The January Miami East-MVCTC FFA Member of the Month is Kyle Elifritz. He is the son of Joe and Tiffney Elifritz of Fletcher.

Elifritz is a freshman at Miami East High School and a first year agriculture student enrolled in Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources.

He was chosen for his continued strong worth ethic and dedication to FFA events. At the recent county and district Parliamentary Procedures Career Development Event, he served as the chairperson and led his team to a gold rating at both events. He participated in the District Job Interview Career Development Event in Division 1. He also earned the Greenhand FFA Degree and helped regularly with the loading and sort of fruit during the chapter’s fruit sales fundraiser.

Every month of the school year the Miami East-MVCTC FFA will select a student to be the FFA Member of the Month. The officer team will nominate one student that has been actively involved in the FFA chapter, school and community activities. If selected, the member will be recognized at the monthly FFA meeting, have their picture displayed in the Miami East agriculture classroom, and receive a special memento in celebration of their accomplishment.
