Wadena-Deer Creek FFA member, Bel Snyder, has qualified for state competition in the Poultry Career Development Event. The WDC senior finished in second place, coming within 5 points of first place.

Snyder judged exterior egg quality, processed boneless products, interior egg quality (candling), parts identification, carcass grading and took a written test on the poultry industry. 

FFA members from 19 high schools in FFA Region II competed at Central Lakes College in Brainerd.

Snyder will compete next at the Minnesota State FFA Convention held April 22-24 at the University of Minnesota, St. Paul and Minneapolis campuses.

This will be Snyder's second trip to state. Last year she competed in the Fish & Wildlife event.

FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. By accomplishing this mission, FFA grows leaders, build communities and strengthens agriculture.

Let's Help Macey!


Wadena-Deer Creek sixth-grader Macey Goeden suffered a freak accident at a basketball game on Feb. 3 that lacerated the cornea of her eye. She's already undergone two surgeries at Children's Hospital in Minneapolis in attempt to repair the damage. The first surgery she received 12 stitches across her eye. Macey has a long recovery ahead of her with the likelihood of more surgeries. Macey's family, Kevin and Gail Goeden of Wadena, are hopeful that she will eventually regain her eyesight in that eye.

Anyone who is familiar with Macey, knows what a sweet, kind and thoughtful girl she is. Her mom, Gail, said Macey has been a trooper through all of this. Wadena-Deer Creek Schools would like to help Macey and the Goeden family as medical and travel expenses are beginning to accrue.

Here’s how you can help:

  • Make a Donation! Make check payable to: The Macey Goeden Sunshine Fund c/o Wadena-Deer Creek Middle/High School 600 Colfax Ave SW Wadena MN 56482 ~~~Mail or drop off your donation at the middle/high school office.~~~
