Louis Pawliski, Anthony Wayne 2017 graduate, made school history as he was a national proficiency finalist at National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana this fall. With 1,444 total state proficiency winners, Louis made it into the top 188 finalists in the country, being in the top four in the area of Agricultural Mechanics Design & Fabrication. This award was based on a application that Louis completed, as well as the state competition that he won. This was all due to the business that he began and grew as an FFA member called Krusty Lures. Today Louis continues to build his business, where he hand-makes fishing lures and rods, in downtown Toledo. He recycles used lead to create fishing lures that are useful to area fishermen. Louis is currently a sophomore at University of Toledo where he is studying business to further build Krusty Lures. This national award area was sponsored by Carry-On Trailer Corporation and Lincoln Electric. Anthony Wayne FFA is a satellite of Penta Career Center.
