FFA Students Have a “Fair” Time

There were 32 members of the Scotland FFA Chapter that attended the 144th North Carolina State Fair. The members attended on October 19, 2015 to participate in the special FFA events designated as FFA Day.

The NC FFA Day was held at the NC State Fair on Monday October 19, 2015

  • Greetings and Remarks from Commissioner of Agriculture Steve Troxler
  • Greetings from NCSU AEE & NCSU Agricultural Institute
  • Leadership & Learning Activities
  • “Selfie” Scavenger Hunt with Prizes!

Advisors for the FFA Chapter are Carrie Wilkins and Reid Ledbetter. Special thanks to Brittany Jones and Kristen Sharpe for serving as chaperones.

The Scotland FFA Chapter also participated in the inaugural FFA Chicken Coop Contest. Scotland was chosen as one of the ten chapters of the forty chapters that applied. The chicken coop was constructed by Advanced Studies student Walker Taylor with the assistance of Jacob Powers. Nolan Clark provided the art work which was two large pictures of Foghorn Leghorn. The coop was titled Egg Wagon USA and was patterned after an early 20th century horse drawn milk wagon. The coop did not win first place but was a crowd pleaser and first choice by the state Agriculture Education supervisors.
