HCC wildlife students earn top award

Students from Haywood Community College came in fourth in a wildlife-centric competition during which they competed against 24 other schools.

In the past seven years, HCC’s student chapter of the Wildlife Society has finished in the top five spots six times during the Southeastern Wildlife Enclave, which features a range of activities including team field competitions, a quiz bowl and art and photography contests. 

This year, the event was held at Mississippi State University, where 19 students from HCC placed second overall in intellectual competitions such as a lab practical, essays and orienteering; third place overall in physical competitions such as rifles, canoeing and fly-casting; fourth overall in art competitions; fourth in the team field competition and ninth in the quiz bowl. To take fourth place overall, HCC beat out teams from many four-year schools.
