Russell Co. FFA members earn regional awards

From Russell County High School FFA

This spring the FFA tradition carried on with member competition in career development events.

Russell County FFA members compete against 12 other schools in the Lake Cumberland Region for a chance to move on to KY FFA state contest in June. The following results are from events held before spring break. Several more events will be held after spring break. Russell County FFA members are coached by chapter advisors Dustin Gosser and Bethany Garmon. This year we also had WKU student teacher Brandon Burks helping coach.
