On Wednesday, March 15, HCHS students competed against 3 other schools in an Ag Competition that was hosted in the HCHS CTE wing. Perry County, Lewis County, and East Hickman all showed up to compete in a variety of competitions which included: board fitting, 3-way switch, rafters, brazing & cutting, welding, small engines, plumbing, block laying, land measuring, and differential leveling.
Larry Rochelle, who was a judge, said that it was a “tough competition” and “very close.”
HCHS and EHHS ended up tying for 1st place with 36 out of 44 points, while LCHS placed 2nd with 15 out of 44 points, and PCHS placed 3rd with 6 out of 44 points. Mr. Mayberry said the results were very unusual. “It’s the first time in my 21 years of teaching that I’ve seen a tie,” he said.
Congrats to all the students who participated!
