Logan Heiby, of Celina, will complete an internship that will promote the agriscience education profession.
During the internship, Heiby will work to promote the profession by facilitating workshops at Ohio FFA Convention, Ohio FFA Camp Muskingum, and the Ohio State Fair. He will also make visits to high school classrooms this fall and attend the 2016 National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana.
In addition to promoting the profession, he has the opportunity to shadow industry professionals to gain experience that will benefit him as an educator and give him experience developing lesson plans for activities presented by agriscience education interns and for teachers to use in their current classrooms.
“Logan has been a great asset to the Agriscience Education Internship program,” said Jessica Parrish, Ohio FFA Foundation program manager and internship coordinator. “He is dedicated to agricultural education and works very hard to ensure that all of the programs and events we host are well planned and uniquely outstanding.”
Heiby will return to Ohio State in August to continue his degree in agriscience education. He is the son of Jeff and Amy Heiby and a graduate of Coldwater High School.
