Mulch and Flower Bulb Sale: The spring mulch and flower bulb sale has started for the chapter. All members are encouraged to participate, as the money raised by this will allow the chapter to go on all the trips and activities  that we do all year. It also helps the chapter pay for incidental costs such as bus fuel and award pins, to name a few. In addition, the top 15 mulch sellers and top 2 flower bulb sellers are eligible to go on the Top Spring Fundraiser’s Trip May 23rd through the 25th. This year’s trip will be to the Red River Gorge area of Kentucky.

State FFA Convention: The State FFA Convention will be held on May 4th and 5th. At the convention, our chapter will be recognized as a Gold Chapter this year! Nelson Craycraft, Sarah Doner, Cole Kleinline, Carlie Krile, Desirae Logsdon, and Kayla Luft will all be receiving their State FFA Degrees. Sarah Doner will be recognized for placing in the Top 4 in the proficiency award area of Organic Agriculture. We will likely have a few CDE teams get recognized for their top placing. Lastly Josie Montoney will be retiring as a State Secretary. It will be a busy State FFA Convention for our chapter and members are encouraged to attend. Forms and information will be available during the first week of April.

Working Together: Mr. Sharp and some senior students have now been working with our track program. The seniors have made a new pole vault pit pan for the Track program and are working on a few other projects for them.
