Four students from Warren Hills’ FFA chapter – seniors Justin Daniel and Mia Ganter, along with junior Jack Speth and freshman Collin Case – competed in different competitions while representing Warren Hills. This event was designed to help students learn about skills they will need to go into professional fields related to environmental science. “I really enjoyed having the opportunity to practice a career that I am interested in,” Daniel said. “It was cool to do it with peers from around the state that have similar future plans as me. I ended up learning a lot and had a great experience.” All four students said they felt that the event helped them gain necessary knowledge on the subject. FFA is a national youth organization that helps members build leadership skills and future careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture. (Photo  courtesy of Mia Ganter)
