On Saturday, April 7, 2018, members of the Westminster High School FFA Chapter won the Maryland FFA Agricultural Technology and Mechanical Systems (ATMS) Career Development Event at Maryland FFA Spring Judging. The team celebrated top ten finishes from all members, with Henry Brunnett being first in Maryland, Matt deLange fourth, J. Patrick Martin seventh, and Daniel Yingling ninth.
The event, considered by many to be one of the most difficult in FFA, focused on career skills related to agricultural mechanics, welding, electrical systems, precision agriculture, and agricultural engineering. Members completed written, hands-on, and verbal tasks to demonstrate their proficiency in ATMS skills. The team will represent Maryland at the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana, in October.
The team and chapter wish to thank Mr. Jim Brunnett for his diligent coaching. To help support the team as it prepares for national competition, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. To learn more about FFA, visit www.FFA.org and www.mdffa.org.
FFA Mission: FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by building their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.
