Mil Gracias - July 19, 2013

-A A +A

I am writing this letter to thank all of the following groups and individuals for helping me to prepare for my competitions.

The Sunrise Kiwanis Club, Noontime Kiwanis Club, Mora Farmers Forum, Las Vegas First, Las Vegas City Schools, Tecolote Land Grant Group, Clean Water, Air and Earth, Las Vegas Key Club, Mr. Marshall Poole, Dr. Anselmo and Helen Arellano, Mr. Tim Crofton, and of course my former FFA advisor, Mr. Thomas Clay.

At the 85th annual New Mexico FFA State Convention a month ago, several Las Vegas FFA members received many awards and honors at the state level. At that same convention, I received a fifth place plaque in the area of Greenhand Creed, a third place plaque in the area of Greenhand Prepared Public Speaking, and a first place medal in the area of Greenhand Quiz.

As a member of the Las Vegas FFA chapter, I would again like to thank the above-mentioned groups and individuals who have helped me with my successes. I would also like to thank the community for their help as well as ask for their support as our Parliamentary Procedure team and I travel to Louisville, KY to compete at the 86th annual National FFA Convention and Expo in October.
