Langham Creek High School sophomore Whitney Walker placed 4 th in the National FFA Creed Speaking Career Development Event (CDE). Students throughout the United States competed for this award in Louisville, KY during the 78 th National FFA Convention. Walker was one of four students selected as finalists at the convention held Oct. 26-29.
“This is by far the biggest accomplishment the Langham Creek FFA has ever had,” said Nikki Reed, Walker’s FFA coach and agriculture teacher.
Prior to the competition Reed said she and first-year agriculture teacher Adam Hernandez helped Walker prepare for the competition by rehearsing the FFA Creed and by prepping her with possible questions derived from the Creed.
Participants in the creed speaking CDE were asked to recite the FFA Creed from memory and answer a series of related questions.
Walker was among the 3,000 youth who traveled from across the country to participate in one of 23 different national CDEs, sponsored by CHS and the National FFA Foundation.
FFA is a national youth organization of 490,017 student members preparing for leadership careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture with 7,210 local chapters in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. FFA strives to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
