Zoey Zupin, a member of the Caledonia FFA chapter, will be awarded a gold-rated proficiency award in agricultural education March 5 at the Michigan FFA State Convention. The Agricultural Education Proficiency Award recognizes students using the best practices available to teach others about agriculture, food and natural resources.

Zupin will be presented with a plaque from the Michigan FFA Association. The award recognizes her work reaching out to elementary students through reading days, volunteering in the agricultural education building at the Kent County Youth Fair, and presenting at the annual field trip for preschool students to Caledonia High School’s agriscience program.

Zupin plans to pursue a degree in agriculture, food and natural resources education at Michigan State University to become an agriscience teacher and FFA advisor. She serves as the Caledonia FFA chapter president and treasurer of the Region V FFA, which covers western Michigan.

The Michigan FFA has more than 8,600 members in 105 chapters. FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
