WHS career students at work
March 21, 2019
Wahkiakum High School Future Farmers of America (FFA) and Career Technical Education (CTE) students were busy in February.
In a fisheries class (above, upper photo), they sorted viable and non-viable eggs and calculated the weights of each to calculate the percentage of loss. They have been visiting Beaver Creek Hatchery to check on their eggs and to see how the steelhead are developing.
FFA students volunteered at the Wahkiakum Chamber Crab and Oyster Feed on February 16.
"They did an amazing job and participated in a great community service activity," Mary Jane Neves, the student reporter for the FFA and CTE programs wrote. "Many of the FFA students stayed from the beginning for pre-dinner activities all the way to the end for clean up."
In Ag Mechanics, students are working on dumpsters for a local business, Stanleys Sanitary.
FFA students also placed fifth out of 15 schools in a welding competition (above, lower hoto) at Lower Columbia College. Participants had to answer 25 questions about welding, complete an MIG vertical weld, and a cutout of a wrench. WHS courtesy photos.
