Forreston FFA Has Successful Winter Season

    The Forreston FFA Chapter has had a very busy winter season this school year. The Agronomy team placed 2nd at the Section 1 CDE at Eastland. Anna Snider was 3rd Overall Individual. Sheyania Hughes took 1st Place in the Section 1 Job Interview CDE held at Highland College and will compete in the District 1 CDE in April. On January 9, our Parliamentary Procedure team placed 3rd at the Section 1 CDE. Our team took 1st Place in the Section 1 Poultry Judging CDE held at River Ridge High School on Feb. 1. The team consisted of Aaron Wubbena, Michael Wubbena, Sheyania Hughes, Anna Snider, and Liam Kuhn. The team will compete at the State FFA Poultry CDE in Champaign in April. Brooklynn Hollis won the Section 1 Dairy Production Award for her record books on Feb. 20.
