Establishing a top rated high school agriculture program in downstate Illinois is no easy feat and Taylorville FFA’s trio of ag teachers plan to maintain that standard of excellence for generations to come.
Taylorville FFA has officially chartered the chapter’s first alumni group with the help of nearly 60 years worth of area FFA supporters and alums. The group, comprised of local farmers, business leaders, former students and parent supporters, is determined to see that the needs of the chapter are met and that the legacy of Taylorville FFA’s outstanding agriculture program is upheld.
With the election of the 2012-2013 officer team, local high school ag supporters are excited to propel Taylorville FFA to even greater heights in the future. The slate is as follows:
President: Larry Barry
Vice President: Trent Norris
Secretary: Pat Grant
Treasurer: Seth McMillan
Reporters: Rachel Stuart and Tim LeVault
Directors: Tommy Barry, Karen Beck, Michelle Beckmier, Shane Butcher, Rob Carls, Jeff Cowell, T.J. Curtin, Kenny Hadden, Matt Heberling, Aarika May, W. Lee Meteer, Mike Mizuer, Tom Mollet, Curt Micenheimer, Mike Nation, Craig Paulek, Pam Whittaker and Jacob Winans.
For local businessman and 2012-2013 President of the Taylorville FFA Alumni, Larry Barry, the alumni group is a way for local citizens to support one of the area’s leading high school ag programs.
