Vocational-technical students from a number of local high schools in southeastern Illinois competed recently in the areas of carpentry, surveying, electricity, and ag power. Southeastern Illinois College once again served as host of the Annual FFA Section 25 Ag Mechanics Competition.
Nine schools, including Eldorado, Galatia, Gallatin County, Hamilton County, Harrisburg, Joppa, Massac County, Pope County and Vienna spent a day on SIC’s campus testing their mechanical skills and learning about careers in agriculture. Ellen Midgley, technical sales representative for Lincoln Electric, delivered the keynote program following lunch and the completion of contests.
First place overall team award went to Eldorado High School.
