Eight teams of Coldspring FFA members traveled with their sponsors to Livingston to compete at the Sam Houston District Leadership Development Events Competition on Thursday, Nov. 10.

In a very competitive event, Coldspring-Oakhurst High School freshman Hayden Richards took third place out of 19 teams.

“The Sam Houston FFA District is one of the hardest and most competitive districts within the Texas FFA Chapter,” said COHS FFA Chapter Sponsor Breana Stevenson. “One of our very own, Hayden Richards, competed in the Junior Creed Speaking competition and placed third out of 19 teams.”

Stevenson explained that in this particular contest students memorize the FFA Creed and recite it from memory, then answer two to three thought-based questions regarding the Creed. “We are so very proud of Hayden and how well she represented the Coldspring FFA Chapter this year.”

FFA Sponsor Ashlie Taylor agreed. “We are proud of the work that all of our teams put into their contests.”

The other team results were: Job Interview — Averey Moss (eighth Place); Ag Advocacy — Georgia Maldonado, Gray King, Kylie Currie (10th Place); Radio Broadcasting — Cinco Bailes, Miki Ellisor, Mayci Whitten (eighth place); Greenhand Quiz — Gladis Martinez, Makayla Harrison, Addison Gann, Alexis Johnson (10th place); Senior Quiz — Kaylen McAdams, Mason McGlaun, Cinco Bailes, Mayci Whitten (ninth place); Public Relations — Colton Bailey, Marlee Thornton, Averey Moss (ninth place); Greenhand Skills — Wade Currie, Landon Ellisor, Tripp Strickland (10th place); Greenhand Creed Speaking — Hayden Richards (third place).
