Sheridan FFA Team Takes Seventh Overall in National Competition

Sheridan High School's John B. Kendrick livestock judging FFA team finished seventh overall in the nation at the National FFA Convention held recently in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Clay Christensen, an agriculture instructor and FFA advisor at the high school, said livestock evaluation is the most popular event in the country for the FFA, and only the top team from each state is allowed to compete at the national level.

Kassi Renner, another ag instructor and FFA advisor, said the team placed fifth overall in the team activity portion of the competition. Renner said the competition, held at the end of October, was a two-day event.

Also on the first day, she said, each team member completed a 25-question test. The second day was for class judging by the team members.

In individual judging, Kendrick team member Maggie McStay earned gold and finished 14th overall in the nation. Kayce Pearce also took gold, and team members Colter Sharp and Braden West took silver.

Renner said McStay's win included a scholarship. Renner said the last time before now that a team from the Sheridan High School FFA chapter competed at the National Convention was in 2015.
