Members of Ashdown High Schools FFA chapter have had a busy spring and are gearing up for a busy fall. Most recently in their activities was the 85th Arkansas State FFA Convention held at Camp Couchdale in Hot Springs on June 6-8, where AHS FFA chapter president Cameron Imler received his State Farmer Degree and Madison Woodruff was named chapter delegate. Other AHS members attending the convention were Hailey Freeman, Kristi Houck, Alexis Houck, Charles Swilley, and Madison Kidd.
Earlier in the spring the AHS FFA chapter raised funds for the convention by raffling a whole hog, cut and wrapped. On May 1, Christy Kirby from Texarkana was drawn as the winner. The hog was donated by Dennis and Katherine Guidry and processed by Center Point High School Meats Lab.
