Parlimentary Procedure
On November 17, the Black River FFA participated in the sub-district Parliamentary Procedure Career Development Event at Smithville High School. The Parliamentary Procedure competition is an assessment of a student’s ability to participate effectively in a business meeting or other group decision making situations. The team performs in a FFA mock-type meeting for a panel of judges. In addition, each member must also complete a written evaluation containing questions that test their knowledge on the rules of parliamentary procedure. Team members included: President, Sierra Sturgill; Secretary; Cori Aviles; Members Mandy Yoder, Mya Kunsman, Hannah Moskal, Hannah Abfall and alternates; John Bricker and Anna Shearer.

The team earned a commendable fifth place finish and gold rating at the sub-district competition. The teams were commend for their hard work as the judges said this was the closest competition at the sub district that they had ever seen. This was quite an accomplishment as this was the first time competing in the event for most of the members.

The members would like to thank the Black River Superintendent, Chris Clark for his assistance in helping to prepare the team.
