WATERFORD, Ohio — The Waterford FFA chapter’s Parliamentary Procedure Team recently competed in two different contests. Parliamentary Procedure teaches students how to run an organized meeting using “Robert’s Rules of Order.”
The sub-district invitational contest was held virtually through Google Meet. The team placed second, received a “Gold Rating” and advanced to the district contest, which was also held virtually. The team placed second in the district contest as well.
This year, only the top teams will advance to the state competition, due to COVID-19. The team, however, ranked in the top 20 teams in Ohio. Typically, about 200 teams compete in the contest around the state.
The Waterford team included Mackenzie Suprano, Grace Huck, Mackenzie Cary, Ashlee Wagner, Emma Hartline, Josie Burke and Jacob Huffman. The team was coached by Matthew Hartline, the chapter’s adviser.
The chapter also recently concluded its citrus sale for the year. The chapter’s 35 members sold about $20,000 in gross sales. Jud Cooper placed fourth in sales overall and was the top first year member, winning an FFA jacket, Madi Hiener placed third, Ashlee Wagner placed second and Emily Hoffman placed first.
