All seven Madison High School students received FFA State Leadership Medals

On June 25, seven members of the Madison FFA chapter attended FFA Camp at Camp Rising Sun for five days. Members attending were Miranda Breid, Marisa Holohan, Joe O’Bannon, Jose Rentschler, Abbie Thomas, Rylee Thomas, and Rebecca Youse.

Throughout the week, members helped make care packages for veterans and wrote them letters. They also learned how to get their community involved, make chapter plans, and also how to better advocate for agriculture. Members also got to enjoy some time at the water front and some much needed air conditioning at the Main Street Music Hall on Thursday night.

On Friday morning members were recognized for the accomplishments throughout the week. All seven Madison FFA members received their State Leadership Medal, Marissa Holohan took second in the Creed Speaking event, Rebecca Youse earned All Around Camper for the Madison Chapter and Abbie Thomas and Josie Rentschler were recognized for their outstanding showing at the Water Front Carnival.

According to advisor Joni Field, “We learned, grew, tried new things and sweat it out all week, but had a great time at Camp Rising Sun.”
