ACTC Hosts Regional FFA Day

The annual Regional Future Farmers of America (FFA) Day on March 13 brought 138 high school students to ACTC for competitions that demonstrated their knowledge and presentation skills.

Students from Boyd County, Greenup County, East Carter, West Carter and Johnson Central High Schools competed in impromptu speaking, prepared public speaking, extemporaneous public speaking, parliamentary procedure, record keeping, talent and American Institute of Cooperatives contests.

The Big Sandy River Region of FFA is one of the eleven regions in Kentucky that hold annual competitions on agricultural related topics ranging from aquaculture and small animal husbandry to nursery and landscape management. The regional winners will compete at the state competition later this spring.
