Wiley Competes in State CDEs

Sunday, May 1, nine members of the Wiley FFA Chapter traveled to Fort Collins with members of the McClave FFA Chapter to compete at the State Career Development Events. These members included Erika Ragland, Taylin Spitzer, Chris Turner, Brandon Rhuda, Kelsey Paintin, Zach Sparks, Slade Melton, Bailey Dodson, and Grady Rogers. On Monday, Ragland, Spitzer, Turner, and Rhuda competed in Floriculture. Paintin, Sparks, Melton, and Dodson competed in Horse Evaluation and Rogers competed in Job Interview. At the awards ceremony, Spitzer and Turner were awarded silver pins and Rhuda and Ragland were presented with bronze pins for Floriculture. The Floriculture team placed in the silver category and was recognized with the presentation of a plaque. Paintin received a bronze pin for Horse Evaluation. During the trip both chapters enjoyed an afternoon at Fort Fun and then dinner at HuHot Mongolian Grill. Traveling with another chapter allows both chapters to conserve funds in these harsh economic times as well as meet new people. When asked how student benefit from competing in Career Development Events, Mrs. Baumann, agriculture advisor at Wiley, said, “I believe students receive many benefits from participating in Career Development Events. Most importantly though, is providing an opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of a particular agricultural interest using a real-life, hands on experience that matches industry standards.”
