The A.B. Graham Ohio Hi-Point FFA chapter placed fourth in the state in a state-wide exam which tests students’ ability to apply economic principles to agricultural businesses.
Students who participated in the Farm and Agribusiness Management Career Development Event took a 90-question test over economic principles related to business management, risk management, and the use and analysis of records to manage resources, according to FFA advisor Dawn Wallace.
“It is a great accomplishment for our students to be able to compete and assess their knowledge level against their peers across the state,” Wallace said.
The event requires teams of four to collaborate to produce a final written or oral report as well as an individual written activity, according to National FFA Organization’s website.
The four team members’ scores plus the team activity score count toward the team’s total score on the exam taken April 9.
Graham/Hi-Point FFA’s team consisted of senior Kenny Stahler, junior Sam Stickley, sophomore Bryant Crisler, and senior Tyler Purk. Out of 719 competing FFA members, Kenny finished 11th overall, Sam finished 15th overall, Bryant finished 19th overall, and Tyler finished 79th overall.
Chapter members who completed the exam included Kenny Stahler, Sam Stickley, Bryant Crisler, and Tyler Purk, Lauren Smail, Chasen Poole, Marleigh Brown, Cooper Strader, Emmalee Cecil, Matt Case, Lane Hollingsworth, Tylar Bailey, Colby Strader, Blake Hoffer, Todd Crawford, Katelynn Wallace, Lindon Hoblit, Josh Dooley, Dawson Rowe, Cierra Furrow, Ethan Gentis, Zack Bumgardner, Michael Bowers, Matt Flora, Brent Case, Gannon Arnett, and Hunter Mays.
