Floyd County Schools College and Career Academy student Christopher Dean earned first place trophies in math, social studies, and current events contests that were a part of the academic quiz bowl at the Georgia CTI Fall Leadership Conference.
Ten CTI students represented the local CCA at the conference, held Nov. 16-17 at the Atlanta Evergreen Marriott Conference Resort in Stone Mountain Park. Attending the conference were Christopher Dean, Cameron Buffington, Mason McDaniel, Stephen Payne, Hunter Yandle, Taman Radcliff, Sergio Romero-Vargas, Brandon Varner, James Jennings, and Chase Massey.
Students attending the conference had an opportunity to participate in academic quiz bowl competitions. Other CCA quiz bowl participants included Radcliff, Payne and Yandle.
The conference theme, “Together We Stand,” provided the focus for high quality interactive leadership skills building activities.
The purpose of the leadership conference is to reward students showing the greatest improvement in career, technical and agricultural education courses and work adjustment skills, and to recognize the achievement of these students.
