(Friday, February 2, 2024, Carrollton, Georgia). Central High School’s Senior Forestry Team placed 1st in the Area 1 Northwest Georgia Career Development Event held in Rockmart earlier this week.
The Forestry Career Development Event (CDE) requires students to demonstrate their skills in diagnosing forest disorders, managing forests and forest inventory and applying approved silviculture practices. The competing teams demonstrate skills and competencies resulting from forestry instruction in the agricultural education classroom. During competition students respond to a forest industry scenario with problem solving using forestry skills and tools. The team also provides a presentation about a national or regional forestry issue.
Senior team member Karson Wham scored the highest individual score in the CDE event. The senior team advances to the State Forestry event on Saturday, March 16. Central High School’s agriculture instructors are Mr. Stanley Clarke and Ms. Allie Bridges.
