FLETCHER – Hunter Hendrix participated in the 2015 North Carolina FFA State Dairy Handlers Career Development Event on Sept. 21 at the Mountain State Fairgrounds.

At the state event, participants are scored based on how well they present each animal. There were two heats this year.  Hendrix won the first heat and made her way to the final round with only four other individuals.  She placed first in the Northwest FFA region and placed top 5 in the state.

“We are proud of her hard work and look forward to seeing her compete again next year,” said FFA advisor, Jesse Lebetter.
