Beach, who is in 10th grade and in the Dawson County High School Future Farmers of America (FFA) program, competed on Jan. 11 in the North Region Area 1 FFA Amicalola EMC wiring contest, held at the Jasper EMC. He placed second in the event, winning a $300 prize from Amicalola EMC for his success. 

“Bryce will compete at the state FFA event in March,” FFA Advisor Keith Pankey said. “Bryce worked hard to prepare for the event.” 

In addition to success in FFA competitions, the students in the FFA program have been hard at work to serve the community they live in. Recently, the FFA students collected puzzles from donors in the community, and on Jan. 12 they delivered the puzzles to the local senior center. 

“The kids chose the puzzle donation one their own to give back to our local seniors,” Pankey said. “I couldn’t be more proud of the kids for the puzzle idea.”
