On March 16, Kern Valley FFA Ag-vocates (pictured left to right) Lydon Olivares and Tyler Hand competed in the FFA Regional Speaking Competitions after medaling in Sectionals. Olivares, who is a tenth grader at Kern Valley High and is KV FFA’s Sentinel, took third in the regional Impromptu Category after taking second in Sectionals and will move on to the state competition in April. Hand, who is a Senior at Kern Valley High and KV FFA’s current president, took first at sectionals in the Extemporaneous Category but, sadly, did not place at regionals.
