The North Lenoir Meats Evaluation & Technology team placed first in the meats evaluation competition in June, marking the fifth time in the past eight years that North Lenoir has won this state event. Teams members are Kelsie Stocks, Katherine Spence, Janna Moore, Roberto Garcia and Hunter Wiggins. Reggie Jenkins is FFA advisor.

This team dominated the math formulation problem and, in cementing its win, had to identify 30 retail meat cuts; place in correct order four rib-eye steaks based on eye area, marbling and color; and complete a 25-question test covering the meat industry.
