the Agriscience Research-Plant Systems Category. In October, Abby will compete at the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis.
On Friday, students attended the
fourth session where officers who received Gold Ratings were announced. With Webb Kress receiving the award on his behalf, Chapter Treasurer Daniel Albaugh was
recognized with a Gold Rating for his Treasurer’s Notebook, and Chapter
