An impressive group of FFA students from Natchitoches Central High School shared their stories about the hours of hard work and dedication that went into the preparation to compete in Agronomy and win 1st Place at the National level. They each maintain a 4.0 GPA. Aaron Beaubouef is their teacher, advisor and encourager. A 5,000 point system was used to grade the teams and they received 4,344 of the possible points (the most accumulated points ever earned by any Agronomy team). The 2nd Place team had 300 points less than that. They placed Individually at Nationals as well. Brooklyn Hampton placed 7th, Dylan Daniels placed 4th, Bradley Scott placed 2nd and Preston Tibbett placed 1st.
