According to Dayton Wood, President of the Cumby FFA Chapter, the team had already placed 2nd at District earlier this Fall in Radio Broadcast contests, and that placement allowed them to advance to Area competition on November 14, 2018. Using scripts they developed during workshops and working as a broadcast team, they faced down students from 70 other schools to bring home 7th Place. However, they did not fulfill their dream of making it to the State level this year. Wood and his two teammates will graduate in Spring 2019, and feel certain that next year’s team will keep up the momentum for Cumby. Additionally, Wood placed 4th in Senior Creed Speaking at the Area contest, and was proud to bring home that designation to his school’s FFA Chapter. Wood plans to major in Ag Communications when he enters college, and to get experience and training in Radio and TV broadcasting along the way. Meantime, Wood and the Cumby FFA Chapter are preparing for livestock shows and judging competitions in the coming Spring. Congratulations to all the students in the Cumby FFA Chapter!
