Buncombe County Schools' agriculture students impressed the judges at this year’s statewide livestock judging competition in Raleigh.

Clyde A Erwin Middle School won first place in the middle school division, while North Buncombe High School won second place in the junior division and sixth place in the senior division. North Buncombe Middle School won third place in the middle school division, and Erwin Middle’s junior team placed 12th out of 68.

Erwin eighth-grader Molly Lusk finished first overall in the middle school division.

“Everyone was a little nervous when we first got down there, but they came through with flying colors,” said Elijah Frisby, a first-year teacher who brought the teams from Erwin Middle. “There were about 800 students from all over the state, but our teams stood out.”

BCS is proud of these students and proud to support hands-on, career-focused learning opportunities.

“The ag curriculum as a whole teaches kids where their food and clothing comes from and the process needed to make them,” Frisby said. “We also teach professional skills like public speaking, writing, as well as proper stewardship of everything around you. And we make sure our students can explain what they know to other people.”

Congratulations to all the students who participated in the competition!
