Coppler awarded American FFA Degree

Written by:
Carley Coppler
agricultural communication
junior

Receiving my American Degree seemed like a distant goal when I began my journey as a Greenhand in FFA. At the beginning of my seven-year journey, I didn’t really know what exactly I had signed up for. To be totally honest, I still didn’t completely understand what I had signed up for by the end of my senior year.There was something about wearing my blue corduroy jacket for the last time at the 92nd National FFA Convention and Expo that was a little different. This time there were no more “unknowns” to look forward to tackling in my FFA Jacket. But, receiving my American Degree was exactly how I had hoped to end my FFA career.

The years between my Greenhand Degree ceremony in my high school’s cafeteria and the American Degree ceremony in Lucas Oil Stadium contained some of the most exciting, transformative, and challenging moments of my life. I’m grateful for all of the lessons learned in the classroom, cattle barn, and CDE venues across the state of Ohio that helped me find my niche and voice in the agriculture industry.

Without my parents, siblings, and FFA Advisor, receiving my American Degree wouldn’t have meant nearly as much. Endings can be bitter-sweet and this one was no exception. However, getting to wear my FFA jacket one last time next to my two siblings was the coolest ending to my career. Receiving my American Degree, in a nutshell, is the culmination of all of the learning and growth I experienced as an FFA member in the last seven years.

As this chapter ends, I’m looking forward to being involved with National FFA in different capacities moving forward.

Mabry awarded American FFA Degree

Written by:
Jasmine Mabry 
sophomore

agricultural education

My involvement in the FFA can be described as nothing less than incredible. The experiences I’ve had, skills I have gained, and memories I’ve made are irreplaceable.

FFA is what lead me to pursue a degree in agriscience education. Being able to lead students into becoming the best, most successful versions of themselves is my aspiration. Although my time in the blue corduroy is over, I know there will be so many new and incredible experiences to come as an agricultural educator.

When I look back on my time in the FFA, the most memorable things are receiving my State FFA Degree, receiving a gold-rated Secretary book twice, camping for my senior officer retreat, the many conventions, competing in public speaking, all of the time spent on trips (regardless of location), and receiving my American FFA Degree.

I got my inspiration to achieve the honor of receiving my American Degree from my FFA Advisor. Miss Sarhra Flinn was very persistent in helping me to achieve my dreams. She works diligently to ensure the success of her students, and I know I wouldn’t be where I am today without her pushing me and showing me that I can achieve many things if I put the work in.

Receiving my American Degree is a dream I’ve had since my freshman year of high school. Walking across the stage at the National FFA Convention and Expo meant so much to me because it was the last “hoorah” to close out the past five years of hard work, determination, memories, and experiences.

agricultural communication

Receiving my American FFA Degree will mark the end of my time as a member of FFA. My FFA experience can be summed up in the word fundamental.

Since my freshman year of high school, I was able to find and build upon a foundation that has carried me into college and will continue to help me as I begin my professional career.

I am a 3rd generation FFA member and will be the first in my family to receive the American FFA Degree. This award is a testament to the foundation and investment my parents and grandparents have poured into me in helping me reach achievements, such as this, and I am so excited to share this moment with them. It is an honor to represent my family, and my chapter, and my state with over 450 recipients from Ohio!

Elliott awarded American FFA Degree

agricultural communication

FFA is an organization that allowed me to explore the world around me through engaging and thought-provoking service learning projects. FFA furthered my passion for agriculture while helping me identify a need for effective communication within the agricultural sector.

FFA and the Career Development Events within FFA helped me choose my future career path as an agricultural communicator.

Crossing the stage at Lucas Oil Stadium to receive my American FFA Degree is the final act I will do while wearing my blue jacket. The degree represents the years I spent working hard raising my animals and working on my family’s farm. I am proud to be able to honor my family, who helped me with my projects by receiving this degree.

As I transition from wearing my blue corduroy jacket to becoming a member of the FFA Alumni Association, I look forward to making future FFA members’ time in FFA one they will remember for the rest of their life.

ACEL Group Scheduling (Columbus campus undergraduates only!)
ACEL is using group scheduling for all our majors to help create a collaborative advising and peer environment. We hope this will help address questions that all students have during scheduling. Individual scheduling will be available to those students who have already attended a group scheduling meeting and still have additional questions and needs. Scheduling and advising are different. Group scheduling does not take away the opportunity for students to meet one-on-one with their faculty advisor about advising and career needs.GROUP SCHEDULING + INDIVIDUAL ADVISING = STUDENT SUCCESS

Diversity, equity, and inclusion professional development workshops
The CFAES Office of Equity and Inclusion is pleased to announce that effective immediately all diversity, equity, and inclusion professional development workshops will be open to CFAES undergraduate students. Previously, workshops were available only to faculty, staff, and graduate students. The Office of Equity and Inclusion feels that this valuable resource should be available to all members of the CFAES community in order to create an inclusive environment where all people are valued and celebrated. Below is the schedule for the remaining fall workshops along with descriptions and registration links. Columbus workshops are held in the Eastman Room, 4-H Center and Wooster workshops in 126 Research Services. Lunch will be provided at all workshops.

November: Men, Women, and Everyone Else: An Exploration of Sex, Gender, and Gender Identity (Register here)
The words “sex” and “gender” are frequently used synonymously, but they actually refer to different, but related, characteristics. What is the difference between the two and what happens when they don’t align? What does it mean to be “transgender”? How do all of these concepts relate to other identities such as sexual and affectional orientations? This workshop will take a deep look into the surprisingly complex world of sex and gender and will culminate in an in-depth discussion of the diversity of trans and non-binary identities. Cap: 30 participants.

Columbus – Thursday, November 7th, 1:30-4:30 pm
Wooster – Friday, November 8th, 1:30-4:30 pm

December: Cultivating an Inclusive Environment: Recognizing and Responding to Implicit Bias (Register here)
This workshop will explore how identities, beliefs, and backgrounds shape our perceptions of other people in ways that can unconsciously and negatively impact our interactions with them. Participants will learn how to identify and empathetically respond to implicit bias in order to foster a more inclusive environment for everyone. Cap: 30 participants.

Columbus – Thursday, December 5th, 1:30-4:30 pm
Wooster – Friday, December 6th, 1:30-4:30 pm

All workshops are facilitated by Dr. Leo Taylor, Program Director for Equity and Inclusion. Please contact him (taylor.3408@osu.edu), or Equity and Inclusion’s Program Assistant, Alicia Baca (baca.31@osu.edu).

Agricultural Communication and Education in the U.K.

Marlee Stollar
agricultural communication
senior

In May and June, I traveled to England and Scotland on the Agricultural and Environmental Communication education abroad. This trip was only two weeks, but had enough experiences to last a life-time.

The part I enjoyed most about the trip was its focus on my major, agricultural communication. Our group was able to learn some key differences and similarities between the U.S. and the U.K. both in agricultural communication and agriculture in general. By learning more about my future profession in another country, I was able to have an even better understanding of global agriculture going into my senior year. I gained this awareness especially through our various industry visits.

While we were in England we visited many places and agricultural businesses, but my favorite was Farmers Weekly. Not only did the company buy us all Starbucks coffee, but also taught us a lot about what their organization does. Karl Schneider, the editor, focused the discussion mostly on where agriculture is in the U.K. now and how that affects their content. Being one of our first industry visits, it was a nice introduction to learning more about U.K. agriculture. Farmers Weekly is the number one magazine for farmers in the U.K., so the organization had a great deal of interesting insights on how to engage audiences.

Our time at the Scottish Farmer was also impactful. Although the publication was smaller than Farmers Weekly, it was interesting to have a discussion with them about their magazine. There we talked a great deal about the decline in print and strategies to combat this issue. Another interesting part of the visit was hearing about the history and how far the organization has come in the past 126 years. We were even able to see old copies of the magazine, understanding what the magazine used to contain versus what it is currently. 

This two-week adventure included tours and visits that were more focused on culture and history as well. Some of my favorite visits include Kensington Palace, the London Eye, the Roman Baths and Stonehenge. I loved the opportunity to learn so much about agriculture, while simultaneously visiting intriguing places such as these. My absolute favorite activity was walking around Edinburgh, Scotland. The historic city has a lot to offer, from shops to restaurants to its overall atmosphere. The group was also able to visit Edinburgh castle, which was also rich in history.

The Agricultural Communication and Education trip allowed me to learn more about culture and agriculture in the U.K. I had previously studied abroad in Brazil my sophomore year, but this trip was a different experience that allowed me to learn more about my major from an international perspective. From the trip, I now have a better understanding of agricultural communication in these countries and how it may, in turn, affect the U.S. I am grateful for the opportunity, and I recommend all students, ACEL or not, to apply in the future!
