FFA brings home awards

Peyton McLaughlin and Brady Roberts – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- Last week LRHS FFA members competed in the Sub-district Contest, sweeping every contest except one, which they tied for first but ended up second in the tie-breaker.

Some students that got first or second in their category included –

  • Cara Zeveney – First place in Extemporaneous Public Speaking
  • Jessica Bierds –  First place in Prepared Public Speaking
  • Noe Garcia – First place in Safe Tractor Operations
  • J.T. Girman – Second place in Creed Presentation
  • Parliamentary Procedures Team – (Girman, Andrea McPherson, Kylee Graham, Maggie Yates, Alize Cordero, and Connor Shrand) placed first.

Zeveney said, “It was a bit of a stressful and fast paced experience, but I really enjoyed having the opportunity to present a speech under such a short and intense time frame.  I look forward to the district competition and hopefully the state one as well later in the year.”

Agritechnology Teacher Susan Grainger said, “If you see any of the students listed above, be sure to congratulate them on their success and wish them luck at Districts in January.”
