Congratulations Menifee County FFA

Friday March 14th the Menifee County FFA competed in the Regional FFA speaking contest at MSU.  We competed in 15 different contests against Morgan, Montgomery, Bath, Rowan, Nicholas, Fleming, Bracken, Robertson, Mason Counties.  First and second place goes on to state in each contest.  I am pleased to inform everyone that 6 individual students will be moving on to state in June as well as 10 students that won the region in Parliamentary Procedure.  This is the most of anyone else in our region!  Our kids competed against schools that have more members in their chapters than we do in our entire school, for example schools such as Montgomery and Fleming have 4 agriculture teachers and 250+ members in their chapters.  Even though we have missed an extreme amount of school for snow these students spent many hours after school since christmas preparing for these contests including 2 hour practices from 6-8 pm and 7-9 pm on many nights and weekends to get ready for these events.  Many of these students have jobs after school and many others are on various sports teams so for these students to put in the dedication and work needed to be this sucessfull is amazing to me.  So if you see one of these students listed below out in the comunity or around school please let them know you acknowledge their work and respect their accomplishments.  I am listing everyone that competed and how they finished but only the 1st and 2nd place kids go on to state.

Thanks for all you do and all of your support.
