The Adair County FFA Greenhand Ceremony was held Friday night, February 24, 2012 at the Adair County High School Cafeteria, with 73 FFA members and over 100 parents/guardians in attendance. FFA Vice President, Jena Hopkins, called the roll of officers. Emily Burton, the FFA Sweetheart, gave the devotion.

Adair County High School Principal, Troy Young, welcomed the parents and members to the ACHS FFA Greenhand Ceremony. After Mr. Young gave his welcome, the Kentucky State FFA President, Kendall Mallory, gave a greeting to the members.

Then the FFA Freshman received their Greenhand Degree.

Soon after the Greenhand Degrees were given out the Quiz Contest took place. There were 15 participants and Katie Orant was the winner.
