The wildlife team previously placed third among both Area VIII and Region V competitors on Apr. 9 in Gatesville.  The team includes Owen Dickson, Alex Duran, Peyton Haws and Creed Miller.  Individually, Duran placed seventh while Miller was ninth.

Other teams competing were:

  • Dairy Cattle (third in district, ninth in area):  Abbi Lee, Lucy Payne, Jazlynn Vasquez

  • Nursery/Landscape (third in district, ninth in area):  Graham McMullen; Luke Mercer; Aubrey Schroeder

  • Poultry (sixth in district, 15th in area):  Alberto Diaz, Braeden Gregg; Carl Welch

CDEs build on what is learned in agricultural classes and encourage members to put their knowledge into practice. These events are designed to help a member prepare for a career in agriculture by testing and challenging the student's technical, leadership, interpersonal and teamwork skills as well as their knowledge of the subject matter. CDEs answer the question, "When will I use this knowledge in the real world?"

State competitions featuring top teams representing each of the twelve FFA state areas will be:  entomology and wool - Apr. 19-20 at Texas Tech University in Lubbock; floriculture - Apr. 26 at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville; livestock - Apr. 27 at Texas A&M University in College Station; wildlife - Apr. 22 at Texas Tech University Center at Junction.

FFA sponsors are Lacey Bennett, Leslie Bourgea, Lloyd Pinkerton, Millie Loftin and Katherine Adams.
