Eastern West Virginia Community and Technical College Foundation helped to support students exhibiting egg products for the Ham, Bacon, and Egg Auctions in the Potomac Highlands Region, including Mineral, Tri-County, and Hampshire counties in March. Eastern’s Foundation was excited to be able to support several students including Elijah Rexrode of Mineral County FFA who exhibited eggs that were purchased for $200; Kelsey Clark of Grant County FFA who exhibited eggs that were purchased for $350; Malachi Holliday of Moorefield FFA in Hardy County who exhibited eggs and were purchased for $300; Brooklynn Tinnell of East Hardy FFA in Hardy County eggs for $400; also Logan Beckman of Hampshire County FFA who exhibited bacon and were purchased for $425 and were donated to raise further proceeds.
Eastern’s Foundation was delighted to be able to support students to soar in the local community and reward them for their outstanding agricultural products raised. Ms. Jennifer Rexroad, Title III Advancement Specialist stated, “I had the pleasure of attending the Ham, Bacon, and Egg auctions in Hardy and Hampshire counties. It was nice to see the community involvement and support for the Future Farmers of America. The hard work and quality that the students bring forth are exceptional and we were very happy to support them in their endeavors.”
