GREENVILLE FFA BANQUET
The Greenville FFA 57th Annual Parent and Member Banquet was Tuesday, March 26, at the Greenville First Christian Church. Chapter President Kayley Woker said she received the Leadership Award at the banquet. She was not expecting this honor but she is very appreciative of it. She hopes she is leading kids to better themselves while showing them what FFA is all about. She is the Greenville FFA Chapter President and the Section 19 President and has many responsibilities but she feels this is a good thing. Their chapter has ranked highly in the state and received several different awards. They have good judging teams and work very hard at their events. Kayley said FFA teaches leadership, how to work with people, and how to be more personable.
