Health Science cluster students took their TAP exam last Friday to receive 3 college credit hours for AHS 102 , Medical Terminology course. We had a record setting 37 students pass the exam, and receive this credit - many of them on the sophomore level. The students have worked hard to achieve this goal, and Dr. Lewis, the Dean of Health Science at TriCounty, was extremely enthusiastic about the students' accomplishment. Congratulations, Health Science Students, Mrs. Evatt and Mrs. Teusch.
Highest Scoring Individual - Leah Burdette
Second Highest Scoring Individuals (tied) - Justin Allen and Kaylee Wooten
For the competition our students were responsible for identifying and understanding the ecology of South Carolina mammals, game-birds and waterfowl, fish, reptiles and amphibians. They had to complete a practicum in invasive species management and habitat management. FFA members had to identify 50 plants by sight and complete a 50 question test on ecology and wildlife management. The team scored whitetail deer antlers and used jawbone ageing techniques to determine the age and health of a deer population. Principles of osteology were also used to identify mammals.
Team members included:
This marks the 5th Consecutive Wildlife Win and the 37th State Championship Title since 2010. They will compete nationally next October at the National FFA Convention In Indianapolis.
