Hours of study and preparation paid off for several Preston High School FFA students recently at a State FFA Chapter Development contest in Moscow. The Preston FFA Chapter won two state titles.
While most PHS students were beginning summer break, 19 FFA members were loading a bus for the long ride to Moscow. As the results of the competition were announced, Preston’s teams were mentioned early and often during an awards assembly.
The ag mechanics team, with Heather Winn, Jackson Sharp and Wes Lowe, worked hard to insure they would not be anything but state champions after finishing second in the competition last year.
“Lowe repeated as the top arc welder, as well as winning in oxy welding. Sharp placed high individual in both small engines and electricity. Winn took sixth in tool identification,” said FFA advisor Larin Crossley. “The team of three easily took top honors and will move on to represent Idaho FFA at nationals in Louisville, Ky. this October.”
