Granbury FFA entomology team members, who won second place in the nation for the Career Development Event judging contest, were recognized by Granbury ISD school board trustees on June 20, 2016.
The squad composed Macey Burch, Brandon Jurado, Alex Myers, and Ben Valles won silver at the Future Farmers of America competition on May 12 at Tarleton State University in Stephenville.
They advanced to the national competition after placing fifth at state on April 23 at Texas Tech University. The group had previously won first place at the Area VIII level.
In the competition, students apply the fundamentals of entomology and develop skills in identifying common insects and their significance to people and agriculture.
