To the Editor:
Thank you to the Troy Daily News for faithfully publishing the news and activities of the FFA chapters in Miami County during the past academic year. It may not seem to be the most outstanding and exciting news for everyone, but with agriculture and related businesses among the leading economic industries in Miami County as well as the state of Ohio, recognizing these students’ accomplishments is good news for all of us.
We do have a vested interest in the Miami East-MVCTC Chapter, but this interest has provided us an inside view of this outstanding organization that focuses on developing strong and confident leadership and whose members invest their energy in community service and supporting numerous charities.
The agriculture teacher and FFA advisor, Mrs. Marie Carity, is a treasure to the program at Miami East. Through her unassuming nature, she directs all credit to her students, but the success of this chapter owes much to her guidance.
We are assaulted daily through TV, the Internet, and social media with plenty of bad news and it would be easy for the newspaper to join that assault. We appreciate that the TDN has the courage to use so much valuable print space to report some very good news.
