Wilmington FFA set for busy year


Wilmington FFA hosted its first annual monthly meeting on Sept. 6. The meeting room was called to order by the 2017-2018 FFA officer team.

Students joined the team at Wilmington High School for discussion on upcoming events. The officer team recited their opening ceremonies and then continued into a discussion with the rest of the room.

Wilmington FFA will be participating in many events within the next few months. Students will have the chance to attend Farm Science Review, where they will be learning about new technologies and opportunities within agriculture.

The team also discussed participating in Cardboard City held at Wilmington’s courthouse later in September. Wilmington FFA has won the best cardboard house for three years in a row now!

Members will soon be elected to attend the FFA National Convention in October. The elections will be based on participation as well as grades within the agriculture program and other classes at WHS. Our program takes great pride in our education. Students also had the opportunity to ask many question and speak amongst the other members in the room.

Once all discussion had come to an end, all members of the meeting stood to recite The Pledge of Allegiance. The meeting was then adjourned.

The next meeting will take place the first Wednesday of October. We hope to see many new and returning faces!
