HCC Wins Virginia Tech Mini Conclave

HCC woodsmen team traveled this past weekend to Blacksburg VA. to compete against NCSU, VT, and DSLCC in their annual mini-conclave. HCC took many of the events with a first place, to finish with a win in the end.

While at VT, the students took a tour of Cheathem Hall to learn a little more about VT forestry program and take a look at the class rooms.
