FFA had some students had some awesome success on Friday. The proficiency award program recognizes students for the skills they have developed through their Supervised Agriculture Experience (where they take what they learn in the classroom and apply it in a real world setting). In January 11 of our students were named Area Winners (our version of region). 

Britton Redd: Agricultural Processing, Ethan Von Hoene: Agricultural Sales - Entrepreneurship, Tell Orton: Agricultural Services, Stran Sorensen: Beef Production - Placement, Stran Sorensen: Diversified Agriculture, Kacie Jones: Diversified Horticulture, Kalley Stubbs: Nursery Operations, Porter Olsen: Poultry Production, Brooke Voorhees: Sheep Production, Kacie Jones: Vegetable Production, and Lorin Wyss: Veterinary Science.   These students then moved on to the state competition which was held February 9. We were fortunate enough to have 8/9 students (8/11 projects) that were named state winners and will now move on to Nationals. The others all placed second. This is 20% of the total winners from the state!  This is a pretty awesome accomplishment for our students.   Britton Redd: Agricultural Processing, Tell Orton: Agricultural Services, Stran Sorensen: Beef Production - Placement, Kalley Stubbs: Nursery Operations, Porter Olsen: Poultry Production, Brooke Voorhees: Sheep Production, Kacie Jones: Vegetable Production, and Lorin Wyss: Veterinary Science.   These students will be rewarded at the State FFA Convention coming up March 8-10 in Cedar City.  Way to go FFA!! You are ROCK SOLID!!
