The January 2017 Miami East-MVCTC FFA Member of the Month is Michael Bair. Michael is the son of David and Annette Bair of Troy. Michael is a freshman at Miami East High School and a first year agriculture student enrolled in Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources.
Michael was chosen for his recent accomplishment of earning a $1,000 National FFA Supervised Agriculture Experience Grant from CCOF Foundation for organic agriculture. Michael has his own business of raising pasture-raised, organic market chickens. Additionally, Michael has participated in the county FFA Parliamentary Procedures Career Development Event as the team’s chairperson. Michael has also participated in the Farm Safety Week’s Drive-Your-Tractor-To-School and Corn Challenge.
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.
