We congratulate Mr. Allen and the Future Farmers of America (FFA) on their recent success at the forestry competition in Powhatan last week. It has been more than 20 years since GHS FFA has competed in any FFA event! Our neighboring divisions were excited to welcome us back into the field and our students did a tremendous job, coming in 3rd overall!
The students worked to identify 25 different species of trees, 25 different pieces of equipment used in the forestry industry, and calculate both tree value and volume in a given area. The students had 25 minutes to complete each station.
We look forward to future success from this stellar team!
