Students and staff at North Montgomery and Southmont High Schools spent the week celebrating a great year of FFA. Nancy Bell, the North Montgomery Ag Educator and FFA Advisor shared some of the highlights of the week at North Montgomery. The school has 63 FFA members.
“This week we had nine students who were chosen to be Pages at the Statehouse,” Bell said. Only 93 students are chosen across the state for the program.
Members also had an FFA breakfast where members served to members of the community. There were spirit days with students donning FFA T-shirts and official dress. Thursday the kids enjoyed Ag Olympics with games like horseshoes, cornhole, bag races and more during the lunch hour. Friday, Mr. Strickler, Mr. Margeson, Ms. Hutson and Mr. Baker got to lay a big smooch on a pig since their classes raised the most money with fundraiser buckets.
At Southmont, advisor Gary Mosbaugh said that his students enjoyed acting as host for a staff breakfast. They also had a visit from State FFA Officer Nathan Blume and a pizza party.
