FFA District Kick Off

Does 220 people sound like a large number? Well, if you are a Scottsburg FFA member, chances are you are used to large numbers of people at a single event.

On Wednesday September 27, Scottsburg FFA hosted the annual FFA District Kick-off. Scottsburg FFA was chosen to host this event because two of the Chapter Officer team members were elected to serve on the District XI Officer Team.

The festivities of the night included an official FFA meeting conducted by the District Officers as well as bonding and leadership activities lead by Indiana FFA State Officers.

Not only did the members get to participate in fun and educational events, the advisors that work so hard for the FFA Program were able to take the time to collaborate with other advisors in the District.

FFA District XI would like to thank all the people involved in making this event happen, including the Scottsburg High School administrators, and Indiana FFA State Officers. They would also like to give a huge thanks to the custodians of Scottsburg High School who stayed throughout the event to assist in anything that was needed.

Scottsburg Hosts the First Class 2A Boys Soccer Sectional

The IHSAA recently added a third class to the soccer tournament at the recommendation of Scottsburg High School Principal Ric Manns. Manns’ emailed IHSAA Commissioner Bobby Cox last year informing him he would like to see the two class system broken up into three classes. The motion passed and with the creation of the third class, Scottsburg was awarded host site of the Boys Class 2A Sectional #31 which included Scottsburg, Charlestown, Corydon Central, Madison, North Harrison, Salem, & Silver Creek. This new tournament alignment created a sectional that now resembles other sports that Scottsburg competes in.
