Area schools are participating in FFA week this week, and every school has their own agenda for how they should celebrate. FFA allows students to grow life skills that will help them be prepared for the agriculture industry, job applications and interviews, ag sales and much more. The Taylorville High School FFA Chapter is using a lot of their week to give back to the faculty, staff and administrators by treating them to a breakfast, and the FFA Alumni will treat the current members to a lunch.
Sue Schafer, Ag Science teach from THS, said the meals aren't all that's prepared for the FFA celebration, as they are also showing pride through their FFA colors and camouflage attire throughout the week.
Schafer said one major part of the FFA members during the year is their FFA project. Madison Taylor, President of the THS FFA Chapter, and Jack Curtin, Vice President, talked about their projects they are looking to complete this school year.
Taylor and Curtin will continue their projects and will be keeping up with their record books throughout the remainder of the year.
Schafer, Curtin, and Taylor appeared on the special NEWSTALK WTIM FFA Week portion of the Noon Farm Show.
