Toombs County High FFA at State FFA Convention
Twenty-Two Toombs County FFA Members recently traveled to Macon for the 81st Annual State FFA Convention. Nearly 3000 FFA Members gathered in Macon for the final round of State Career Development Events, Interviews, Awards, a Career Show, and Motivational Speakers. The two night/three day event was jam packed with opportunities for students to develop their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success.

While at the convention FFA Members and Alumni participated in " Rebuilding Macon", a project to rebuild and revitalize the downtown historic district. FFA Members and Alumni Members cleaned an abandoned lot of trash and debris as well as painted a historic home. It was an awesome site to see everyone from across the state working to make the town of Macon a better place. Look for similar ideas coming soon to our area...
