At the Salem R-80 School Board meeting on Jan. 19, FFA students Tessa Gorman, Oliver Midyett, Grant Case and Kaylen Sikes gave a presentation about the work they’ve been doing with elementary classes recently. The theme of the program was ‘Agricultural education in motion’. Children were taught for an hour on Friday by FFA students for ten weeks, where they asked questions, participated in activities and used workbooks. The students felt they had made an impact on the children’s learning and were excited that the children were absorbing the curriculum and the FFA students themselves so well.
Sherry Lea, of Healthy Dent County, spoke to the board to seek approval for a recreational trail grant application.
