Four Sheridan College Range Land Management students participated in the Wyoming Section Society for Range Management meeting in Laramie last week.

Students competed in three competitions: Extemporaneous Speech; Range Plant Identification, and Undergraduate Range Management Exam.

Lacy Nelson, a second-year range management student from Ten Sleep, Wyo., edged students from the University of Wyoming, to earn first place in the Extemporaneous Speech competition.

“This is truly an outstanding achievement,” Sheridan College Agriculture Director Keith Klement said. “Lacy’s dedication and hard work were evident. She is an excellent reflection of Sheridan College’s thriving – and nationally competitive – agriculture program.”

Sara Leffingwell, a freshman from Clyde Park, Mont. tied for third place in the Range Plant Identification competition. “Sara has a keen eye for identifying plants,” said Klement. “She did very well in this year’s competition.

Nelson and Leffingwell competed at the conference with two fellow Sheridan College agriculture students. More than 30 students from SC and UW participated in the competition.
