FFA week set for Feb. 17-21

Batesville High School will be among many schools celebrating FFA Week Feb. 17-21, according to adviser Cassie Mumaw.

The schedule includes

• Wednesday Feb. 19, Official Dress Day: Wear FFA attire. A milk chugging contest will take place during lunch;

• Thursday Feb. 20, Carhartt Day: Keep warm in Carhartt bibs and sweatshirts. A hay bale toss will be in the ag lot during SRT 2 and 3. “We will have a visiting guest during this time, as a state FFA officer will ... discuss FFA opportunities with our members throughout SRT,” she reveals;

• Friday, Feb. 21, Extreme Sports/Tractor Day: Wear Fox Racing or John Deere attire. Students can drive tractors to school. There will also be a four-wheeler/lawnmower show in the ag shop.

FFA was first organized nationally in 1928 in the state of Missouri. Today there are 540,379 FFA members from 7,489 chapters that represent the 50 states as well as Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

FFA members have chosen to celebrate the week with fellow classmates and faculty. There will be specific dress dealing with agriculture each day as well as an agricultural activity. These incentives are brought into the school to help motivate and promote FFA within the corporation, as well as give the agriculture students a chance to honor an industry they greatly appreciate. “We invite all BHS students to join in the fun and help celebrate FFA Week,” Mumaw says.
