Gilbert High’s Henry D. Gunter, Zachary R. Shumpert, Carl T. Spears and Albert K. Weymouth added another first-place plaque to their school’s FFA trophy case.
The team won first place at the state FFA Wildlife Career Development Event by demonstrating exceptional knowledge and understanding of wildlife conservation and management, plant identification, and basic management practices for native wildlife species.
Career development events build on agricultural classes and encourage students to put their knowledge into practice.
Weymouth also scored an impressive individual first-place award at the event.
This is the first Wildlife CDE state title for GHS’s FFA chapter, which won the Forestry CDE state title in May.
