21, the Black River FFA participated in the sub-district Parliamentary
Procedure Career Development Event at Triway 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.
This year’s senior
team was led Parliamentary President, Cori Aviles; Secretary, Hannah Abfall;
Members, Cassidy Mrakuzic; Mya Kunsman; Katlyn Kubitz; Anna Shearer, and
alternates Shay Ladina and Hayley Rickey. This year’s Junior Team included
President, Alexa Shearer; Vice President, Molly Cordonnier; Secretary, Chloee
Howard; Sentinel, Kaitlyn Long; Reporter, Amanda Mycek; Member, Joe Mennell and
alternate Kiersten Hendershot.
The senior team
earned a commendable third place finish and gold rating and the junior team
earned a second place finish and gold rating at the sub-district competition.
The teams were commended 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
would like to thank the Black River Superintendent, Chris Clark for his
assistance in helping to prepare the team. Good luck as both teams earned the
opportunity to advance to the District competition.
