Four Americus-Sumter High Agriculture Science students traveled to Tifton recently to compete in the Southern Region FFA Agriculture Mechanics Career Development Event. The event was hosted by Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, where the four-hour long competition was divided into varying categories such as Environment, Forestry, Welding, and Agriculture Engineering. The ASHS team competed in the Small Engine Repair category.

 “It was really cool to compete with other schools,” said sophomore Cahlin White. “I enjoyed the experience very much.” Likewise, ASHS junior Hunter Aldridge said, “This was a new thing for us, going there and competing. I look forward to improving for next year’s competition.”

 Riley Veal, also a sophomore, said he enjoyed the opportunity to visit the ABAC campus and intends to enroll after graduating from ASHS. “ABAC is a great school for someone interested in agriculture. I definitely plan to go there.”

 “It was a very unique learning opportunity to get to mingle and interact with students from other districts,” said Dresden Dukes, a junior at ASHS.

 Mr. Brandon Gross, the young men’s teacher and sponsor for the competition, said the team represented ASHS very well in the event. “I am proud of their initiative and resourcefulness. These students have a bright future.”
