Gervais FFA members have fruitful weekend at Marion County Fair
Gervais FFA members enjoyed some fruitful showmanship at the Marion County Fair this month, including Katie Hanson, who won overall showman for goat and lamb, market goat and lamb and supreme female lamb.
Gracey McCargar won best education display for her art.
"Proud of these kiddos for having the drive to work with their market projects after such a taxing year," Gervais FFA advisor Megan Dilson said on social media. "We look forward to incoming freshmen and a full barn next spring for Fair 2022."
Other notable Gervais FFA takeaways from this year's fair included Mariela Benavides, who won supreme swine female; Jennifer and Lauren Ferschweiler, who showed very well in their 4H divisions; Addison Arnzen and Isabel Jaramillo, who showed their respective market swine; and Dresen Ferschweiler, who showed a market lamb.
Dilson thanked the Gervais FFA's two members of the district officer team, Uriel Aguilar and Dresen Ferschweiler, along with the other district officers for overseeing successful fair outing.
