The Perry FFA Chapter also had the State winning Greenhand Conduct of Meetings team that will compete at the National FFA Convention this fall. These members were all freshmen in their first year in the FFA!

Alex Scovill was also elected the State FFA President for 2020-2021. He and his team will lead the State FFA Association over the next year. These are major accomplishments for all of these students and should have been included in the article as well.
