CCHS FFA Competes at KY State Convention

Calloway County High School Future Farmers of America recently attended the Kentucky State FFA Convention in Lexington. CCHS students joined nearly 2,500 other Kentucky FFA members at the convention competing in various events.

Savannah Pittman, a 2022 CCHS graduate, was awarded the state championship in Diversified Crop Entrepreneurship and finished state runner-up in Fruit Production. CCHS’s Parliamentary Procedure team, consisting of Isaac Martin, Lillie Thorn, Westin Tolley, Ginni Mikulcik, Nick Caldwell, Elizabeth Lanier, and Jacee McKeel finished as the state runner-up. Ginni Mikulcik finished in third place in Nursery Operations, and Cooper Housden took third in Public Speaking. Jacee McKeel won a $1000 cash prize in the Shark Tank event.

Eight recent CCHS graduates received the State FFA Degree, the highest degree a state can bestow upon members. Emma Arnett, Caden Brooks, Luke Hale, Trace Johnson, Isaac Martin, Ginni Mikulcik, Lillie Thorn, and Westin Tolley all received this honor.

This is the nineteenth consecutive year CCHS has produced a state champion at the convention. The school has produced 75 FFA state championships in 48 different areas over that same period.
