FFA Students Fare Well At District Competition

Members of Waterloo High School’s FFA Chapter made history on Feb. 4 by becoming the first Waterloo students in more than 40 years to participate in a district FFA event when they took part in the District VIII Leadership Development Event championship at Marcus Whitman High School.

LDE competitions help students develop public speaking, leadership, and job readiness skills.

The students who participated are: James LaRock (employment skills), Daniel Acquilano (prepared public speaking) and Olivia Lyon (people in agriculture). All three placed in the top five. Lyon and LaRock will participate in sub-states on March 18 at Byron-Bergen High School.

The chapter is advised by Robin Allen.
