Three William Kelley FFA students reported on the team's recent trip to state during the Lake Superior School Board meeting Tuesday, May 14.
Ten of the club's 25 students made it to the state competition at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities campus, including senior Mackenzie Dwyer, who competed in the dairy cow evaluation, forestry and parliamentary procedure contests.
"It's been another successful year as we gained leadership skills and completed service projects, participated in fundraising events and gained knowledge and skills through the development career events," Dwyer said.
Sophomore Alison Kaiser also participated in parliamentary procedure leadership development.
"The competition requires us to do public speaking, work as a team and learn a variety of motions," Kaiser said. "I also had the opportunity to use my vocal skills by singing at the Region 2 talent contest."
Seventh-grader Hannah Henschel also spoke about her experiences with the team. She participated in the flora culture state event.
"I enjoyed my first year of FFA and I am looking forward to participating again next year," Henschel said.
