The Quitman High School Future Farmers of America (FFA), Nursery and Landscaping team, recently placed 1st at the Area 1 Career Development Events (CDE) hosted by LA Tech. What makes their achievement all the more special is that the five-member team of Madison Taylor, Noah Leach, Emma Harper, Caden Brown, and Eliza Guin all are freshman.
Even more incredible is that Emma Harper was the highest scoring individual in the contest that consisted of 3 parts:
(1) General knowledge exam
(2) Identification of nursery plants
(3) Identification of nursery tools and equipment
By virtue of their victory the team qualified for the state contest to be held at LSU on April 5th.
