The FFA Livestock Skill-a-thon team was honored to travel to Raleigh, North Carolina to compete in the national contest. The Team members included: seniors Lillian Robinson, Reagan Meyer, freshmen Jenna Lawler, and Andi Berkemeier.

As a final result, Lillian Robinson placed 10th individual in the evaluation division. 

The four-day trip included the partial exploration of some North Carolina areas. The team went to North Carolina State where they attended two animal science classes, toured the campus, enjoyed ice cream at the Howling Cow Dairy Education Center at the college farm, and had the pleasure of attending a delicious dinner downtown. 

The team also met with a past National FFA President Dr. Travis Park from Indiana and had lunch with Ray Starling, president of the NC Chamber Legal Institute and a past National FFA officer.

During this time, the team helped with a local community haunted forest for Halloween. On their last day of the trip, they visited the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences to learn about forestry and entomology.
