This banquet was a celebration of all the hard work and effort that the Taylorville FFA Chapter accomplished throughout the year at dozens of contests, interviews, and competitive events. Taylorville also had 5 students in the “Top Ten of Most Active FFA Members” in the section. Ben Wamsley was the leader of the Taylorville members in this category by competing and participating in the third most contests of any member in Section 16. Other Top Ten Competitive Finalists were Drew Mickey, Waylon Paulek, Cole Paulek, and Lizzie Schafer. “Our students represented Taylorville High School extremely well this past year. Sometimes they make their success look easy, even though it is not.. We are very proud of these students and happy to see them reach such a high level of success! Says advisor Mrs. Sue Schafer.”
