Four Cedarcrest High School FFA members took part in the Job Interview Competition on Dec. 5 in Lynden.

Lauren Labrosse, Connor Clancy, AJ Schutte and Katie Birum, spent hours perfecting their resumes and cover letters, answering tough questions, and learning the correct format of writing a proper thank-you letter.

“The Job Interview Competition is really fun and helps me to prepare for career interviews in my future,” said Labrosse, a senior.

Students who place in the top five move on to the state level. Clancy and Labrosse consistently impressed the judges, and placed in the top five. The State FFA Competition will take place in Pullman, in early May.

Cedarcrest is the only school in Western Washington to have two students moving on to the state level.

“These students should be quite proud of themselves” said Cedarcrest FFA Advisor, Sarah Thomas.

Students representing Mt. Vernon, Burlington, Lynden, Lynden Christian, Ferndale, Meridian, and Arlington were all tough competitors.
