FFA Hosts First Annul Muddy Truck Contest
By Stormie Moore
This year Greene Central wanted to go outside the box to celebrate
FFA week by hosting a muddy truck contest.
“We wanted to do this because I saw East Duplin High School was doing it, so I ran it by Mr. Greene,” said Greene Central FFA Adviser Jessie Kennedy. “It is going to become a annual thing for Greene Central.”
“Kennedy brought the idea to me for a way to bring out FFA week, so I thought it would be a good to give it a shot, said Principal Patrick Greene. “It was very fun, and I think students really enjoyed doing this, so we will continue to do this next year.”
The first place winner received a 20 dollar gas card. Junior Rocco Fontanella, the first place winner, said, “It felt good to win first place and get a gas card, but it wasn’t fun when it took a hour and a half to clean my truck.”
Junior Hunter Murphy also competed and got second place. “It felt good to compete in this contest; I had a good time, and it was fun,” said Murphy. “I competed in this because I mainly wanted a gas card, but I also enjoy going mudding.”
“It was fun getting all muddy, but when it came to the cleaning part, it was a pain in the butt,” said senior Thomas Radford, the third place winner.
There were others that participated in this event but didn’t make a entry in the contest. “Even though I didn’t make it in the contest, it was still fun to be a part of it; mudding is something I have also loved to do for fun,” said junior Adam Piner.
The contest didn’t work out quite so well for everyone. “I tore my drive shaft out going mudding to compete in the contest. I never even made it to school that day,” said senior Justin Faulkner. “I spent the day trying to get my truck fixed; that wasn’t cheap. I spent around 300 dollars just to fix my drive shaft.”
