Chapter members volunteer time
Chapter members volunteer time In December, members of the Zane Trace FFA chapter assisted with the Church Triumphant Food Pantry’s Christmas distribution of food by preparing food boxes for more than 40 families.
Students sorted, packed and loaded food items that the pantry received.
The chapter also donated more than 200 pounds of fresh fruit, fresh eggs and chicken to the pantry.

The Zane Trace FFA Food Science career development event team placed first out of 20 teams in the Ohio FFA Food Science competition held Saturday, Dec. 5, at Ohio State University's Parker Food Science building.

The group is the first Zane Trace CDE team to qualify for the National FFA Finals.
Senior Mariah Cox led the team with a state runner-up finish, which earned her a $2,000 scholarship to Ohio State. Fellow team members Nathanael Freeman, Katie Shelby and Ann Shelby placed 14th, 29th and 35th respectively.
The event tested the students' ability to make decisions related to food quality and safety, sensory evaluation and food analysis equipment. The students also completed a team project for the contest in which they created a nutrition analysis and marketing plan for a cracker made from ancient grains. Students will represent Ohio in the national finals in Indianapolis during the National FFA Convention in October.

2015-16 Officers' Retreat
The 2015-16 Zane Trace FFA officers met in July to plan activities for the school year.
Officers Kevin Daubenmire, Mariah Cox, Alanee Fannin, Sky Graves, Bishop Chamberlin, Julie Everidge, Karlee Daubenmire, Delany Herron, Olivia Pflaumer and Hope Gatwood agreed to make an effort to keep themselves from following the same routine each year.
Once the officers concluded their work, which included assessing goals for the year, they went to Water's Edge Canoe Livery for some fun. Everybody paired up in a canoe to travel down Paint Creek.
