Shelbyville Reviews

Shelbyville is a small rural community with a population of about 450 people, it is a very close knit, the school strives for excellents in education and has one of the best FFA groups in the state of Missouri.
A change I would like to see is the return of Relay for life, after many years of having Relay for Life it has left Shelby County and doesn't plan to return. Shelby County is a hot spot for cancer and a very needed program for research and assistance for residents.

Shelbyville is a small friendly town where everyone knows everyone. I would like to see more of the youth stay in our community when they graduate high school and college.
