CCC students perform well in recent contests

Students from two separate programs at Collins Career Center performed well in recent contests.

Students from the Agriscience program took fourth place in the Ohio Future Farmers of America Management Career Development competition. The students were judged on their proficiency in wildlife identification as well as pond and habitat management. Part of the competition was also based on a comprehensive online exam.

“Our students took first place in the online exam portion,” Randy Reed an agriculture teacher at CCC, said. “That was out of more than 70 schools. The team received a banner for its finish.”

Four members of CCC’s Ohio FFA also participated in the Equine Finals at the Ohio FFA Convention in Columbus last month. Those four students reached the finals of the event and in doing so qualified for the larger American Paint Horse Association Youth World Show next month in Fort Worth, Texas.

“The team was judged in that competition on one class of halter and one class of performance horses,” Reed said. “The students then had to give an oral presentation on their individual placings.”
