FFA places in range judging event

Gothenburg High School FFA’ers brought home hardware from a recent district range judging event in Gates.

About 300 students competed in the event.

Top placers from Gothenburg were: 20. Josee Hotz, 73. Alex Meyer, 76. Jesse Rudolph, 95. Karleigh Kleinknecht, 101. Ebony Anderson.

The local top scoring team, made up of Hotz, Meyer and Jacob Meyer finished 17th out of 80 teams.

The FFA chapter also sent 28 members to Impact Conference in Curtis where they interacted with and got to know the new state officers and attended various workshops about leadership.

Mady Vogel said she learned what being a leader really means and how it can benefit her, not only in FFA, but in other activities.

“Impact is a conference that can benefit people in multiple ways,” Vogel said.
