Bond County Students Celebrate National FFA Week

National FFA Week is underway and students are celebrating in a variety of ways at Bond County Unit 2 High School.

Students attended the First Christian Church as a group and enjoyed lunch together before stopping by WGEL for our Public Affairs program Sunday.

Monday is Concert T-Shirt Day, where students wear souvenir t-shirts from their favorite concerts.

Tuesday is the faculty appreciation lunch, where Wes Pourchot and the students prepare and serve lunch to teachers, and Official Dress Day. Tuesday night is the annual FFA Work Auction with a meal at 6:00 p.m. and the auction to follow at 7:30 p.m. The meal will be in the GHS cafeteria.

Wednesday is Camo Day.

On Thursday, FFA students will host elementary students from throughout the district for their Barnyard Zoo and Farmer Dress Up Day.

On Friday, students are invited to drive their tractor to school and wear an ag-related or FFA cap and shirt. Ag Olympics will be held Friday. And Friday night will mark the Section 19 Dodgeball tournament, to be held at Mulberry Grove High School.

Mulberry Grove FFA students are in Chesterfield, Missouri today visiting the Monsanto facility.

WGEL spoke with Mulberry Grove FFA Vice President and Section 19 Sentinel Lauren Robison about the activities planned for this week at Mulberry Grove High School:

Ag in the Classroom instructor Emily Hartman will participate in the petting zoo activities in Mulberry Grove, talking to students about the many ways their lives are impacted by agriculture every day.
