UA FFA placed first overall in the State and was crowned the 2021 State Champion FFA Meats Evaluation Team. The team will now represent NC at the National FFA Convention held in Indianapolis, Indiana in October. Senior Kaleb Pope said, “It was different practicing for the contest in a hybrid learning environment, but once again hard work and dedication from the team paid off.”

Gracie Williams was the high scoring individual overall followed by Isaac Williams (4th overall), Kaleb Pope (5th overall), and Cade Stegall (7th overall).
