After a week of morning and afternoon practicing, the Audrain County R-VI FFA Chapter Officers made our way to the Area 5 Fall Speaking Contests.
These officers included: Justin Gastler-President, Caroline Schafer-Vice President, Julie Hale-Secretary, Tyler Mays-Treasurer, Terasa Black-Reporter, Leah Mays-Advisor, and Lindsey Gastler-Sentinel.
We weren’t there to give a five minute speech over swine or anything of that matter.
We were there to participate in the Opening and Closing ceremonies that every FFA officer must know.
With nervousness creeping all over the place we went into the auditorium of the Bowling Green High School with smiles on our faces and our parts memorized to perfection. At about 8 p.m. on November 9, 2011, the Audrain County R-VI FFA chapter found out that we placed second out of seven teams.
