West Central Students Participating in FFA Week


West Central FFA students are getting in the spirit of educating others about FFA.

FFA Leader Shaw Haselby told WKVI News that the students have been participating in spirit days. Today is Denim Day while tomorrow the students will be driving their tractors to school. Friday is Cowboy/Western Day.

Haselby says FFA is vital in giving students information about agriculture, but also public speaking, leadership skills, and other experiences to promote agriculture.

One project the students are working on is a green room where vegetable plants will be planted and donated to area organizations. They also plan on working and contributing to a community garden.

National FFA Week is an opportunity for FFA members, alumni and sponsors to advocate for agricultural education and FFA. The week of recognition runs until Feb. 28.
