The Harrells Christian Academy FFA continued their busy spring on April 8th by competing at the federation level in a number of different contests. The contests were held at Hobbton High School. Eight different HCA students competed in four different competitions, including Parliamentary Procedure, Prepared Public Speaking, Extemporaneous Public Speaking and FFA Creed. The Parliamentary Procedure team, consisting of Amos Lanier, Will Huff, Anna Burgess, Rachel Bland, Blake Phillips and Holden Quinn, placed first in the federation. HCA freshmen Marianne Moore and Will Huff both placed third in their respective competitions with Moore competing in Prepared Public Speaking and Huff competing in Extemporaneous Public Speaking. HCA freshman Jacqueline Madden also did well as she placed fifth in the federation in the FFA Creed Speaking contest.
