Jones gets top award at convention

-- — The Batesville High School FFA chapter traveled to Purdue University June 19 in celebration of the 83rd state convention, reports adviser Cassie Mumaw.

In addition to the hourly workshops and trade show, there were three general sessions that recognized award winners throughout the state. 

Colt Narwold was honored for his state- winning dairy placement Supervised Agricultural Experience, as well as Andrea Doll in Veterinary Medicine and Chad Jones in Turf Grass Management. 

Adam Harmeyer and Doll both earned third place recognition for their SAEs in Home and Community Development and Small Animal Production, respectively.   Jones and Josh Nuhring earned state FFA degrees, as they fulfilled community service time as well as progressed in their individual entrepreneurships. 

Senior Raeshelle Strobel was elected to represent Batesville FFA on the District XII officer team for the upcoming year. She will take part in numerous public relations opportunities and better represent FFA in southeastern Indiana. 

The highest awards, the Stars of Indiana, were presented at the end of the evening.

Mumaw explains, “This award is granted to the individuals who best represent their entrepreneurship or placement as well as their state degrees.” 

The Indiana Star in Agribusiness was awarded to Chad Jones, 19, son of Mike and Amy Jones, Oldenburg. He owns and operates Jones Mowing. Services include lawn care, small tree and limb removal and snow removal in the winter months. 

The student is Batesville’s first state Star in Agribusiness.  The adviser points out, “Chad has devoted a great portion of time and responsibility to developing a successful, long-term business.  We as a chapter couldn’t be more proud of a great individual.”
