By Trista Gropp

Nov. 19, 2010--The University of Wisconsin-River Falls Alpha Tau Alpha and Agricultural Education Society members recently returned from Indianapolis with outstanding accomplishments in their participation in the National Alpha Tau Alpha Conclave and National Collegiate Agricultural Education Conference.

In the national parliamentary procedure contest, UWRF team members Ashley Johnson, a sophomore agricultural education major from Amery; Megan Kelly, a sophomore agricultural education major from La Crosse; Stacey Kunde, a freshman agricultural education major from Oshkosh; Kayla McCann, a sophomore crop and soil science major from Amery; and Kimberly Schadrie, a junior agricultural education major from DePere took first place in the written exam and second in the overall competition. Schadrie took top individual in the written test.

Jamie Renier, a junior agricultural education major from Denmark, presented the UWRF Program of Excellence, taking first overall for UWRF’s second consecutive year. UWRF also placed first in the categories of community service and fellowship.

UWRF again received the platinum level A.W. Nolan Memorial Leadership Award that recognizes collegiate agricultural education organizations for their pursuit of national leadership and professional development opportunities for their members. The organization must demonstrate and ensure the professionalism and success of the National Collegiate Agricultural Education Conference and Alpha Tau Alpha Conclave and improve the communications between collegiate agricultural education organizations.

The conferences, held in conjunction with the National FFA Convention, brought students from universities throughout the country together to network with professionals and learn from those involved in agricultural education at state and national levels.
