   FFA is holding a meeting with a nacho bar and a pinata to spark interest with future members on September 10 at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria. 

   “This year we’re working more on advocating, whether that be for FFA or ag in general,” junior and FFA treasurer Frankie Nelson said. “As an officer team, we’re striving to make our meetings more enjoyable for our members.”

   FFA has over 300 students enrolled who are ready to get started. FFA continues all of its previous traditions, events, fundraisers, meetings and shows but with new events now.

   “We’re most excited about is our first meeting,” Nelson said. “The theme is ‘Nacho Average FFA Chapter’ where we’ll have a nacho bar and a pinata.”

   With the increase in participating students, FFA will not only see an increase in fun but also in competitiveness. The number of students will all try to be seen at competitions.

   “The officers are excited for the year,” FFA and agriculture teacher Daniel Phillips said. “We want our participation to increase and all our students to be successful this coming year.”

   Not only has FFA grown, but they’re looking forward to special events like homecoming with special fundraisers. The floral class is selling mums and garters, but there is a limited supply.

   “The floral class is selling mums and garters,” junior and FFA reporter Emily Chavers said. “$40 for garters and $60 for mums.”

   But that’s not the only fundraiser FFA has planned for this year. They are going to continue their usual fundraisers such as meat and cookies, and new this year, christmas ornaments.

   “FFA sells cookies and meat products.” Phillips said. “Horticulture club does the mums and garters and the Agriculture Shop is going to cut out Christmas ornaments and sell this year.  All these funds help run all the various programs we have.”
