Chris and Char Lee, of the Pettisville FFA Alumni affiliate, were named Outstanding Horizon Members of the Ohio FFA Alumni Association during the 44th Ohio FFA Alumni Convention, Saturday, Feb. 20, in Columbus.
The Lees and John and Lexie Poulson served as official delegates at the convention.
The Lees have served as chaperones to state and national conventions, worked the Pumpkin Fest and pork dinner, and help monitor the recycle center.
They have judged science fair and public speaking on the local, county and district levels.
They first joined two years ago. The Horizon award is for first- through third-year members.
During the meeting, Cathy Nofziger was recognized as an Ohio Alumni Achievement finalist, and the Pettisville affiliate received second place in the Agricultural Promotional Award area for conducting a parents meeting last fall when alumni officers went through alumni items and explained FFA activities.
The Pettisville affiliate has more than 180 members and conducted the Pumpkin Festival, hog roast, Washington Leadership Conference and state and national convention support last year.
They assist the chapter in various activities throughout the year. They also award high school and college scholarships along with Supervised Agricultural Experience monetary awards.
