January 2019 Update
Jackson County High School students Hunter Scott and Savannah Page recently exhibited their swine projects at the Hart EMC Swine Show held in Carnesville, Ga.  Both students participated in showmanship and Savannah was named the Reserve Champion Intermediate Showman. Hunter and Savannah both had entries in the Market Hog Show.  Savannah had a first-place entry, a barrow in class 8 weighing 165 pounds,  that went on to win Division 2 Champion and Reserve Grand Champion honors for the show.  The show was sponsored by Hart EMC.  Hunter and Savannah are 9th grade FFA members.  Congratulations to both of these members!  Thank you for your support of our program.
