Righetti FFA Tree Pruning State Champs

The 4-person RHS FFA Fruit Tree Pruning Team won individual and team title honors at the recent Mid-Winter State Finals at Fresno State University.

Member Maximus Guerra placed third high individual, with  Nicole Plude sixth high. The team finished with the title of state champion. The other team members, Carolina Lemus and Jazzlynn Franco,  were among the top  15 finishers.

They were evaluated individually on their ability to prune several fruit trees, as well as giving oral evaluation of their efforts.

“The Righetti FFA is proud of the hard work and dedication their students  put into  preparing for  this event,’’ said Agriculture Teacher Amy Guerra. “They cannot wait to compete in the upcoming Spring Career Development Events and bring home more  State Champion Bowls.’’

Persons wishing to support the team's pruning efforts should contact Guerra at 805 937-2051. The students may be able to prune your fruit trees.
