Adair County High School students had an impressive showing last week at the 93rd annual state FFA convention. 

Held in Lexington June 7-9, students attended a career fair and explored “oppurtinities within the agriculture industry in our state,” according to a press release from FFA sponsor Brittany Smith.

“It felt amazing to be back at state convention!” Smith said. “Due to Covid, it was the first time many of our kids had been able to attend. Our students represented Adair County and our chapter very well.”

Smith’s press release noted that students were also encouraged to network with students from other counties and attend leadership workshops. The convention also served as an opportunity for the Adair chapter’s officers to grow as a team.

The following students won awards at the event:

Emylou Miller—second place, Floriculture Impromptu Contest

Gracie Baker—third place, Dairy Production – Placement Proficiency Contest
