Josh Barnard

The Coffee County Central High School Student of the Week is senior Josh Barnard. Josh, son of Joshua and Amy Barnard, has maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout his high school career, and according to his Advanced Placement English teacher, Mrs. Rhonda Winton, he is a hard-worker and has “exemplary manners.” Josh is always eager to help if something needs done before or after class. Mrs. Winton has also observed Josh, the FFA president, exhibiting these traits at FFA fundraisers and at the greenhouse when she has purchased plants.

Josh participates in many state, regional, and national-level leadership and career development events each year through FFA. The CCCHS chapter has won the PLOW (Pushing Literacy Onward) award; this program works to encourage agricultural literacy and advocacy. Josh also participates and has placed in extemporaneous speaking contests where he is required to draw a topic and write a speech in only a short 30 minutes. Josh explained that this contest tests students’ in a range of areas: technology, agricultural politics, foreign agricultural, and more. In his spare time, Josh works on his family’s farm where they raise 14,000 chickens and collect, on average, 10,000 eggs each day. Using his education and experience with FFA, Josh plans to attend Tennessee Technological University and pursue a career as a veterinarian. Although Josh’s passion lies with large animals, he plans to practice as a veterinarian of both large and small animals. Coffee County Central High School is very proud to have such an involved, ambitious student, and we are certain his preparation at CCCHS will lead him to a bright future.
