Teams from Kathleen and George Jenkins high schools were among the top finishers at the 91st National FFA Convention & Expo last week in Indianapolis.
The Kathleen High team (pictured left) ranked fifth in the nation in the Forestry event, and George Jenkins High (pictured below) finished seventh in Veterinary Science.
In addition, 13 students from our schools earned the American FFA Degree, which is awarded at the National Convention each year to less than one percent of FFA members, making it one of the organization’s highest honors.
