STC-Swainsboro Hosts Regional FFA Competition

March 14, 2013 - FFA students from 14 high schools met on Southeastern Technical College’s Swainsboro campus for a number of regional FFA Career Development Events (CDEs) on March 5.

Taking place twice a year, the CDEs allow high-school students to compete against one another and improve their skills in wildlife management disciplines. The Swainsboro campus of STC hosted game bird, white-tailed deer, and aquatic management events and a general identification event. The CDEs were coordinated by Jill Lehman and Southeastern Tech’s Fish and Wildlife Management (FWM) students.

“Some of these students have been participating in contests since they were in the ninth grade,” said Lehman. “I enjoy seeing them at the competitions twice a year and watching as they mature and become more competent.”

The goal of these CDEs is, according to the Georgia FFA Association, “to develop individual responsibilities, foster teamwork and promote communication while recognizing the value of ethical competition and the value of individual achievement.” Winners of CDEs here, for the Area 4 region, qualify to compete at the state level, and can move from there to national competition.

The CDEs are also a chance for students to see a college program that caters to their interests, which is one of the reasons Lehman and STC stay so involved with FFA.

“I have had several FFA participants who have finished high school and enrolled [here],” said Lehman. “In fact, there are currently two in the program.”

As one of a small handful of technical college FWM programs in the state, STC has been able to attract FFA students regardless of location.

“Several years ago, we held the state competition here on the Swainsboro campus,” said Lehman. “There were over 400 participants. Afterward, I gained four students from the Atlanta area.”
