LDEs focus on creating situations for members to demonstrate their abilities in public speaking, decision making, communication and their knowledge of agriculture and the FFA organization. Team and individual events are used to reinforce what is taught in agricultural science classrooms.
Students advanced from the Chisholm Trail District competition on Nov. 9 in Cleburne. The state competition is on Saturday, Dec. 2 at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville.
FFA sponsors are Lacey Bennett, Lloyd Pinkerton, Leslie Bourgea, Millie Loftin, and Katherine Adams.
