College of the Ozarks will be hosting an FFA contest workshop on Saturday, March 2. The workshop is a mock agricultural contest to show FFA contest participants how real contests work. MHS FFA members who plan to compete in contests this spring will be going, as will FFA members from all over the area.
“You get to meet a lot of new people,” sophomore Christie Bannister said of the event.
The workshop is set up exactly like a real contest, and it is a help to those who are new to contest events.
“The workshop is a good learning experience,” senior Taylor Wehmeyer said.
The mock contests will include livestock events, food events and horticultural events. Some contests may have written tests as well.
“We have some competent and intelligent people,” adviser Stan Coday said, “and I think that we will have a very successful turnout.
But the workshop is also a time for fun and making memories.
“The workshop is absolutely bodacious,” Bannister said.

With senior leadership and experience coming back to MHS baseball, the spring is going to be fierce.
“I expect us to have a successful season, work hard and play well,” coach Roger Wood said.
Doug Jones, athletic director, agreed.
“The key this year is going to be hitting the ball,” Jones said. He also said that he is very optimistic with the first game of the season coming up on March 21 against rival Ava.
“The Ava game is going to be a tough rivalry this year,” Jones said.
Unfortunately only 13 players are on the roster this season. With such small numbers, each player is going to have to commit, work hard in practice and come to play ball.
“We only want the players on our team that want to be there and come to play,” senior Curtis Carnal said.
“Some play ball; some don’t,” Wood added.
