Tristen Roll takes 1st in FFA proficiency award competition
Earlier this spring, the Holyoke FFA Chapter submitted two Proficiency Award applications to the state. Proficiency awards highlight a student’s Supervised Agricultural Experience through an extensive application that compiles the work a student has done since their freshman year.
Tristen Roll, a junior, is the state winner in the Specialty Crop Production Placement award area. He has worked at Lutze Farms for the last three years and will be recognized on stage at State FFA Convention this June.
Senior Alex Vieselmeyer was the second-place state finalist in the Beef Production category, which is the largest and most competitive award area in the state. Vieselmeyer’s SAE consists of raising a registered Angus cow herd and club calves with his family.
