INDIANAPOLIS – The Tonasket FFA team’s state championship last May was only the beginning.
Six Tonasket High School students – five of whom graduated in June – proved they could compete with anyone in the nation Oct. 19-22 as they took national runner-up honors in the Parliamentary Procedure competition at the 84th National FFA Convention in Indianapolis.
“I can’t say I was planning on going to Indianapolis and nearly winning a national championship,” said Tonasket FFA coach Matt Deebach. “This is the first team I’ve been able to take back there. This is like dream-time stuff.”
