This week is National FFA Week, and chapters around the country are making plans to celebrate in their own creative ways. Local chapters are also participating.

FFA members are fighting hunger in Arkansas by packaging 30,000 meals. Members from Lamar, Clarksville, Scranton, Paris, County Line, Ozark, Mansfield, Westside and Danville are living to serve. The Bacchus Family Adventure Farm in Lamar hosted the students and the Pack Shack Party.

At Hackett, FFA officers came to the elementary classrooms sharing agriculture with those students. On Wednesday, February 20, FFA officers Joy Colwell and Sydney Opolka taught animal science to first and second grade students. “We appreciate these FFA officers, their advisor Johnny Harp and their desire to share agriculture with our elementary students,” said Hackett Elementary Principal Tura Bailey.
