Taylorville’s FFA program is among those celebrating National FFA Week this week. The club has been holding many events to celebrate.
One of those events includes a petting zoo for the students at Vision Way Christian School Wednesday. Ellie Tippett is the Vice President of the Taylorville FFA. She says the animals at the petting zoo include a dog, a calf, and a very special chicken.
The group also recently visited Taylorville Junior High School. Tippett says she believes there will be a big group of eighth graders that join FFA next year.
The FFA will also be receiving proficiency awards for their record books. Taylorville FFA President Kent Girard explains what keeping record books entails.
Tippett and Girard appeared as guests on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
