Sutherlin FFA members traveled all the way to the Sutherlin Family Church on Monday, February 24th for the Sectional Leadership Career Development Events. Sutherlin had a great turn out at the district event a week prior with many individuals and teams moving on to this state level event. "It was a success," says Joe Matteo Sutherlin FFA Chapter Officer, "and a great end to weeks of hard work." Sutherlin FFA members worked hard preparing for all of the different speaking events. Sutherlin results include: Creed Speaking-Emma Matteo (1st), Sophomore Public Speaking- Bryson Price (2nd), Advanced Public Speaking- Kylee Carson (3rd), and Advanced Parliamentary Procedure (2nd) consisting of Jessica Freeman, Kylee Carson, Heather Brown, Bryson Price, Joe Matteo, and Kelsey Maillet.
These events are all very good learning experiences regardless of the placing, but it is very exciting when FFA members bring home blue, red, or white banners just as Sutherlin will continue to do.
