Eufaula High School Future Farmers of America Advisors Buster Padgett and Leigh Money recognized students that worked on the tractor restoration team throughout this summer at Tuesday night’s meeting of the ECS. The students put in more than 200 hours on a 1953 tractor.

The tractor restoration team was one of 12 finalists nationally.

Also, the EHS FFA Chapter was honored for being in the top 300 of 8,000 chapters nationally.

“We worry about national rankings in Alabama,” Padgett said. “We’ve got ‘em right here.”

Members of the FFA team include Connor Gissendaner, Haley Nolin, Shelby Hutto, Maegan Hutto, Bryan Dees, Logan Pittman, Luke Padgett, Eden Woods, and Ian Hays.

The Eufaula Education Foundation was also recognized at the meeting. It started in 1995 and over the last 15 years the foundation has awarded about $78,000.

This year the foundation awarded about $5,000, including for books, literacy games and more to Eufaula Primary School and Eufaula Elementary.

Schools Facilities Director James Bailey said about 40% of the new alternative learning center is complete and do everything possible is being done so it can open by Jan. 7. He also noted that security cameras continue to be updated at various campuses.
