WAITSBURG-Waitsburg FFA members and their advisor Nicole Abel were busy with three events this past week. Four students traveled to Pomeroy on Wednesday, March 8, and competed in Sub District Leadership events. Freshmen Regan Milliman and Kiya Mings recited the FFA Creed, and sophomore Chasity Paddock gave a speech on windmills being helpful or detrimental in a prepared public speaking competition. Alyssa Hollingworth gave an extemporaneous speech on FFA's influence on agriculture education in non-farm families and placed third. She will now advance to Districts on March 23 in Asotin. The Ag Mechanic team consisting of Garrett Palmer, Levi Boudrieau, Alyssa Hollingsworth, Quinn Benavides, and Preston Hinchliffe, attended the district meet at WA-HI on Thursday, March 9. The team placed sixth out of eleven teams. Boudrieau finished 16 out of almost 50 students. LaGrande, Oregon, was the site of the Shamrock Shoot hosted by Eastern Oregon University. Waitsburg FFA trap shoot members shot at 100 clay targets 16 yards back from the trap house, with snow on the ground and a chill in the air. Garrett led the team with 81 hits, William Daves shot 74, Abbi Paolino hit 69, Trace Nesje 60, and Preston Hinchliffe connected on 48 targets. Eighth grader Nesje competed in the novice division and placed third.
