First time on the FFA auction block, eighth grader Jessica Jahay has fun with comments made by the auctioneers who keep things lively at South Barber's FFA Work Auction Monday night.

New ag teacher and FFA Advisor Tommy Hutson gave South Barber's FFA Work Auction a facelift of sorts. Monday night over 60 members of the community dined on pork loin, brisket, calf fries and all the trimmings at Kiowa's Community Building instead of the high school.

When the auction commenced, each FFA member stood on a bale of hay as auctioneers Sam Spicer, Kyle Hughbanks and Clay Spicer had a little fun while selling the students for eight hours of work.

When it was all over, Hutson said the auction itself raised $18,700 and with additional donations the amount grew to over $19,400 as of Tuesday afternoon.

Hutson thanks the community for their support and generosity, even when the local economy is not booming. "I was pleased with the kids," he said. The FFA uses the money for their projects throughout the year.
