The Warren County Chapter of Future Farmers of America held a banquet last week to honor and award members for their hard work and dedication throughout the 2013-14 school year.Attendees were treated to a meal in the high school’s cafeteria catered by Prater’s BBQ before moving to the auditorium for the presentation of awards.Guests got a sense of how disciplined FFA members are during the banquet. FFA president Mindy King called the meeting to order followed by an invocation from 2012-13 president Laura Palomo.A check for $600 was presented to Tennessee State FFA treasurer Colton McClanahan to be used for diabetes research. FFA members raised money for diabetes research by selling T-shirts, sodas, chips and juvenile diabetes ribbons during Ag Day which was held in the fall.Juvenile diabetes was chosen by Tennessee FFA Chapters as their service project for the year.
