Written by David Green.

Hard work paid off for the Fayette FFA Parliamentary Procedure team. The many before-school practice sessions resulted in a second-place district contest finish and a trip to the state competition.

The team will travel Dec. 18 to the state contest in Columbus.

Team members are Darrell Randall, Reba Rash, Clay Burkholder, Jon Boesger, Cady Stockburger, Jessie Torres, Sarah Kovar and Amanda Gilmore. Alternate members are Demi Powers, Noelle Goodson and Sydney Brown.

Fayette’s team also placed first at the county contest Dec. 2 in Archbold.

Three Fayette members advanced to the district competition in the job interview contest. Those advancing were Rollin Jones, Patrick Mellott and Jessie Torres.

Other Fayette students participating were Demi Powers, Alec Hylander, Patrick Mellott, Reba Rash and Clay Burkholder.

Competitors created a résumé and cover letter, participated in a mock interview, filled out an application and wrote a thank you letter.

Extra fruit from the annual sales project will be given to the Christmas Cheer program to assist Fulton County families in need of help.

A school-wide effort to collect non-perishable goods continues at the school for the Christmas Cheer program.
