Members of the Battery Creek Future Farmers of America (FFA) Chapter traveled to Georgetown, SC, on Saturday, February 3, to compete in the state Wildlife Career Development Event.
These development events build on what is learned in agricultural classes and encourage students to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of wildlife conservation and management, plant identification, and basic management practices for native wildlife species.
Battery Creek FFA team placed sixth in the event with team members Amanda Taylor, Maggie Holm, Delainee Roberts, and Zoe Wills. Beth Ann Melton is the agriculture teacher and FFA advisor for the Battery Creek chapter.
The event was sponsored and hosted by Horry-Georgetown Technical College.
The South Carolina FFA Association has more than 7,000 members across the state with the mission to develop leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.
