Winning the state trophy was also a first for the community of
Cove, a first for the school and a first for the three-year-old FFA
chapter. It seems this group likes setting firsts.
Although a state win has its own merit, the team didn't rest
on its laurels for long. Winning state meant the top four scoring
members of the Cove team would represent Oregon at the 2007 National
FFA Convention in Indianapolis. Another first.
