by Morgan Vincent, Edmonson County FFA Chapter Reporter:
Six members of the Edmonson County FFA Chapter qualified to compete at the Kentucky State Convention in various Impromptu speaking competitions on June 23rd, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, each of these competitions took place virtually.
The members that competed were:
Hayley Lindsey in Beef Impromptu
Maggie Brewer in Floral Impromptu
Danyale Atwell in Goat/Sheep Impromptu
Morgan Vincent in Horse Impromptu
Grant Merideth in Small Animal Impromptu
Mia Jones in Swine Impromptu
In addition to the great achievement of competing at state level, there were two members that placed. Grant Merideth won FFA State Champion Small Animal Impromptu and Morgan Vincent achieved FFA State Runner-up Horse Impromptu.
By exercising leadership, critical thinking, and speaking skills, these six members have further educated themselves in how agriculture affects the world around us in every way.
