Palmyra’s FFA quartet that won a national championship last year, almost pulled it off again this year in a completely different competition category.
Palmyra’s Farm and Agribusiness Management team of Evan Nierman, Timothy Wellman, Augustine Mahsman and Ji Yong Ni took second place at the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Ind. Oct. 26-29.
The four won the Floriculture team title last year.
Three of them finished in the top 10 individually this year in farm and agribusiness management, with Ni, Nierman and Wellman taking fifth, sixth and seventh respectively.
Palmyra’s team was coached by Luke Mahsman.
A team from Montezuma, Iowa, won the national title, while the Kindred, N.D. team took third place.
According to the National FFA website, the Farm and Agribusiness Management Career Development Event is designed to test the ability of students to apply economic principles and concepts in analyzing farm and ranch business management decisions.
Participants responded to questions concerning economic principles in farm business management as well as a problem-solving analysis section.
Also during the national convenction, Palmyra FFA members Jacob Webster and Hope Hudson received American FFA degrees.
