A group of five FFA members competed in the Sectional Ag Mechanics Contest Thursday. Greenville’s FFA team ranked fourth place overall. Individually, Adam Cruthis placed fourth in carpentry, Larry Edwards placed fourth in electricity and Tyler Thiems placed first in survey.
The Illinois Farm Bureau Youth Education Committee also recently announced that the Greenville FFA Chapter won the section in both the Cooperative Program and the Heritage program. In the cooperative activities award area, the chapter won second place in the state, which will give some FFA members the opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C. this summer.
