PEARL CITY — Seven members from the Forreston FFA chapter traveled to Pearl City High School on the morning of Feb. 20 to show off the work they had done in their SAE (supervised agriculture experience) projects. These students work on their projects outside of the classroom and complete a record book about their projects. There were three members who excelled and will move on to the district competition at Geneseo High School on March 8. Those students include Casey DeVries in agriculture mechanics repair and maintenance entrepreneurship, Dausyn Heslop in swine entrepreneurship and Justin Myers in diversified crop production entrepreneurship. Forreston also had a few close second-place finishes including Coehen Kirchner in beef entrepreneurship and beef placement, Katee Bismark in dairy production placement, Alivia Miller in agriculture education and Kyla Lamm in sheep entrepreneurship.
