The week of Feb. 18 is national Future Farmers of America (FFA) Week. All week long, FFA students at Henry County High School will participate in a number of activities, including fun games in the cafeteria during lunch, a special event at the county clerk’s office, an invitational competition and a parliamentary demonstration for the Board of Education. The FFA students’ week will culminate with the Farm Machinery Show, followed by the annual Greenhand ceremony where FFA members gain initial entry into the organization.
Throughout the week, all students at HCHS can participate in dress up days to mark FFA Week. Tuesday’s theme asks students to dress patriotically in honor of “’merica.” Wednesday is “Going Hunting for an Ag Job” day, so students are asked to wear camo or bright orange. On Thursday, students can don green or red to show their respective support for “John Deere vs. International Day.”
