20130913 MHS-FFA-parliamentary-practiceMembers of the Mission High School FFA Chapter Parliamentary Procedure Team already were excited to be the first parliamentary team from the Rio Grande Valley to take the state title and advance to national competitions.

Now their preparation for the national competition will take them on a side trip to Austin for yet another honor.

Tom Maynard, a member of the State Board of Education, invited the group of nine students to perform a parliamentary procedure problem demonstration in the Texas Senate Chambers and also for the State Board of Education.

The members of the team are: Vanessa Calderon, president; Johanna Jimenez, secretary; Jose Calderon, officer; Rolando Hinojosa, officer; Alyssa Flores, officer; Itzel Lopez, officer; Christopher Venecia, officer; Kimberly Cantu, officer; Sebastian Martinez, officer.

Calderon said qualifying to compete at nationals was a dream come true and the invitation to perform before the members of the State Board of Education, and possibly other state officials in the Senate Chambers is an unexpected bonus.

The National FFA Convention will be held Oct.30 through Nov.2, in Louisville, Kentucky.
