2014 Chadron State FFA Results
We're still waiting on a list of full results and pictures from the Nebraska State FFA Convention held in Lincoln this past week. This is Chadron High School's first year hosting an FFA Chapter in over 50 years. We excited to share some of the highlights from the State Convention.
The biggest highlight came during the Friday night banquet when it was announced that CHS sophomore, Kane Wellnitz was named the State Champion in the Junior Public Speaking contest!
Other highlights include:
Chadron Agriscience Team was awarded a blue ribbon.
We received notice this past weekend that Chadron High School has qualified a team to compete at the Finance Challenge Regional Competition in Kearney on April 19th.
Mrs. Buldler entered teams of three from her Personal Finance class. The team consisting of: Jayden Garrett, Logan Gimeson, and Logan Lembke finished in the top five of all Western Nebraska teams earning the regional berth. This statewide contest is sponsored by the Nebraska Council on Economic Education.
The Chadron High Future Leaders of America attended the annual State Leadership Conference in Omaha on April 25. While at the conference, students participated in a bigbusiness tour of Werner Enterprises, listened to the keynote speaker, Laymon Hicks, and attended a variety of workshops. But most importantly, Chadron students competed amongst all class levels in many different business competitions.
Along with many hours of taking notes and studying, Mr. Bradley's Advanced Biology class opened up a world of hands-on learning activities. Not only has the class dissected crawfish, and frogs, but recently they were able to dissect a turtle. The class learned many skills during this lab, listening and following directions on a paper, teamwork, and the slow and steady hands of a scientist dissecting its specimen. The class was divided up into groups of two, each group received their own materials and turtle to dissect. The process was difficult.
Chadron High School competed in the 2014 CSC Scholastic Contest on Friday, April 4th. Chadron HS finished 4th out of 14 schools in Division III (1st - Wright HS, 2nd - St. Thomas More HS, 3rd - Bridgeport HS).

Basic Nursing is one of our dual-credit courses through WNCC taught by Nicole Pourier. Every year during a patient-care unit, students practice feeding patients with disabilities. Our CHS staff volunteer to serve as patients, each with a specific physical or mental disorder.
This has provides a great learning opportunity and experience for our students interested in pursuing a career in nursing ...in addition ... it often turns into a fun experience for our staff!
