TVCC AG Power Class Rebuilds Tractors

Ag Power Units RebuildsBy Mark Meredith/TVCC Public Information

The Agriculture Power Units class at Trinity Valley Community College recently completed rebuilding a pair of 1952 8N Ford tractors. They were both fun projects that took everyone’s participation and knowledge to complete, and three students received trophies made of parts off the projects. The tractor on the right in the photo is equipped with a flathead V-8 engine taken from a 1951 Ford pickup, and will be on display at the Cain Center in Athens during the 52nd Annual Farm and Ranch Tour in May.

Students Taylor Davis and Don Hatton received outstanding student awards, and Jake Boyd was named outstanding I&T student. Pictured left to right are Coach Bratton, J. T. Quezada, Chris Coleman, Leland Kirchmeier, Don Hatton, Forrest Lane, Jake Boyd, Taylor Davis, Lindsey Beaver, Jennifer Jones and Cally Cox.

The Agriculture Power Units class is held each spring on the Athens campus. For more information, contact Brent Bratton, (903) 675-6354.

Beef Before the Battle Scheduled!

Hey, TVCC football fans – we’ve got some big news! This year’s Beef Before the Battle will be moved to the Cain Center to accommodate a larger crowd.

This year’s event is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 21, and will precede Saturday’s Battle In The Valley against Nassau Community College at Bruce Field.

Danny’s BBQ has agreed to cater the event again.

This will be the third straight year Weinstein Law has held the preseason banquet – and this year we are partnering with Paul Benson and Virtual Communications Specialists, who is sponsoring Saturday’s game.

More details about tickets and guest speakers will be released as we go along, but we wanted you to mark it on your calendar and help the 2014 SWJCFC Champion Cardinals kick off another season!
