The Mississinawa Valley-MVCTC FFA Chapter held an event called “Chips and Tips” the week of December 13th-17th. Each day that week, an alumni of the chapter came in to give advice about life and FFA.
This is to lead the current members in positive directions that will help them out in FFA and in their lives. On Monday, December 13th, Emily Scholl came in to give her advice about life and college.
She gave the members a lot of valuable information about college in general. On Tuesday, December 14th, Taylor Stachler came in.
She was the 2020-2021 chapter president. She had a lot of advice on moving to a college that is far away. She talked about how living on your own, outside of home has a lot of pros and some cons as well.
On Wednesday, December 15th, Leah Scholl came in to talk about her life as a graduate. She was the 2020-2021 chapter vice president. She had a lot of good advice on how to balance college, family, and life in general.
On Thursday, December 16th, Jacob Dircksen talked about his choices. He graduated a year early, and he started his own business. He provided a lot of good information to people who decide to not go to college.
On Friday, December 17th, Parker Kaffenberger and Hawk Thomas came in to give their after-high school advice. Hawk Thomas was the 2020-2021 chapter sentinel.
They are both mechanics who had a lot of life and career advice to give the current members. The chapter is very thankful for those alumni members mentioned that gave their time to come and talk to current members.
It is greatly appreciated, and the current members will greatly benefit from it!
