Dennis, Holcomb receive scholarships
The Madras FFA Alumni awarded $750 scholarships to Bailey Dennis and Aspen Holcomb recently. Dennis was the FFA secretary, and Holcomb was the sentinel. Both have been involved with the program and raised swine.
"They both were huge program/FFA advocates, communicated with community supporters and helped raise money to get five students to the 2019 National FFA Convention," said Alumni member Karla Simmelink. "They were both very active and helped grow the program — putting on (the) Sadie Hawkins dance and attending almost every Coffee Cuppers meeting to advocate for FFA and the ag program. They also helped in numerous recruitment activities, including visiting (Jefferson County Middle School) to inform them of the opportunities in FFA."
