WSN FFA lands spot at state

Four students from W.S. Neal’s FFA will be headed to the state competition in June in Auburn.
Earlier last week the team traveled to Perdido River Farms in Poarch to compete.
They competed in the forestry, land and livestock portions of the competition.
The event consisted of many different elements for each portion including exams, knowledge and actual field competition.
WSN placed sixth in forestry, fifth in land and third in livestock.
The livestock team locked in it’s chance to go to state with the third-place finish.
Students set to compete in the state livestock portion are Nicole Boutwell, John Braxton Rhodes, Haley Douglas and Rachel Stuckey.
“I am very proud of the kids. This program takes work and effort along with juggling all the other activities that they are a part of on campus and off. It takes a ton of motivation, dedication, work and time and they blow me away with their dedication to the program. It says a lot about them when they dedicate their time to us,” FFA sponsor Josh Coleman said.
The next competition for W.S. Neal FFA will take place in May in Enterprise.
There will be more chances for WSN students to advance to state during that competition.
