  • National FFA Finalists

    On June 18th, Tyler Beasley and Lucas Thornton, rising 8th graders, won first place at the state FFA competition in Raleigh's FFA State Convention Center. Their project, "As the Chickens Grow," was an experiment on clustering chicks together to see if the group size determined how fast they grew. This had been proven on a large scale, but they focused their experiment on small chicken coops. They discovered that the larger the number of chicks, the faster the chicks grew. These young men placed first in the state, and last week they were placed in the top 12 in the country. Beasley and Thornton will now compete in the nationals, which will take place October 30th-November 2nd in Indianapolis. Beasley and Thornton will set up a trifold, and be interviewed by judges. Mr. Barry Honeycutt, their FFA director, expressed how proud he is of these young men, and how this is an accomplishment rarely achieved by students in 7th grade. He cannot recall the last time was that students in Johnston County made it to the finals. Honeycutt stated, "We're excited!"
