Five members of the Black River FFA Chapter recently represented our chapter in the District Job Interview Career Development Event at Smithville High School.

Devin Wiles, Charlie Hollan, Summer Sooy, Kylie Leonard and Chloee Howard were among other District 3 FFA members within their respective divisions.

The Job Interview competition is one that allows students to showcase their ability to apply and interview for a position within an agricultural company.

Each member prepared a resume and cover letter, compiled a portfolio, completed an application, interviewed with a company representative and completed a follow up letter. Students were divided into divisions based upon their grade level.

After an intense round of interviews, Black River FFA members came out on top. Howard, Leonard and Wiles competed in the senior, junior and eighth grade divisions, respectively, and earned first place. Sooy and Hollan competed in the sophomore and freshman divisions, respectively, and earned second place.

Howard and Leonard advance to the State Job Interview Career Development Event at The Ohio State University in December.
