McKenzie Sharp For Homecoming Queen

Hello! My name is McKenzie Sharp and I am running for homecoming queen for FFA (Future Farmers of America.) I am President in the Horace Maynard Chapter. I would like to help show Union County and the rest of the world that FFA is still here. It seems we are drifting from farming and going in another direction. Did you and your family eat today? That food came from a farm. No farms, no food. FFA has shaped me to who I am today, and it has helped me get through the tough times in my life. FFA has helped me by speaking in crowds, showing my calves, learning how to make friends, and so much more. FFA will get ninety percent of what we raise and the other ten percent will go to the athletics department.
