(Franklin, GA) — Heard FFA would like to congratulate Callum McCay and Bailey Hefner.

Callum placed second in the state for the Tractor Operations and Maintenance Career Development Event which took place last Saturday Tifton, GA.

He won the area event in September which took place at Camp John Hope.

We are proud of the effort that Callum put into preparing for this event.

The event consisted of a 20 question problem solving exam, a 20 question general knowledge exam and a difficult driving course pulling a fertilizer spreader!

Bailey competed in the Area 3 FFA Lawnmower Operations and Maintenance Career Development Event at Camp John Hope in Fort Valley, GA.

Bailey had some tough competition, he was able to pull a first place title out of that event, which means he will compete at the state level in February and hopefully bring back to Heard County a state title!

His event consisted of a 20 question General Knowledge Exam, 20 question Problem Solving Exam, and a rigorous driving course on a zero turn lawnmower!

We are very proud of Bailey and wish him the best of luck at the state level in February!
