Trenton High School had six students win first place in various categories during last night’s FFA Area Two Proficiency judging. By taking first place, each is a qualifier for the state competitions.

Those taking top honors in area competition are Milo Simpson in Beef Production Placement; Cade Claycomb in Dairy Production Entrepreneurship; Katelyn Clark in Diversified Ag Production; Abby Simpson in Diversified Livestock Production; Seth Doolittle in Turf Grass Management; and Emma Roberts in Vegetable Production.

THS students also participated in 13 other proficiency categories at the area level.

Cade Claycomb was named the Area Two Star Farmer and will advance to the Missouri State FFA Convention.
