Community Spotlight: Members of Community, Palmetto High FFA Members Work to Fix School Fence

Published Friday, June 27, 2014

PALMETTO – June 19th was a day of hard work for some Palmetto High FFA (Future Farmers of America) members.

 

Advisors Julie Tillett and Michael Ingram alongside nine FFA members came to help fix the perimeter fence of the agriculture land lab. Rodney Potter at Pro Build assisted by donating 20 new boards for this project. The boards were broken due to time, and sun damage. After hours of pulling out nails, sawing and hammering in boards, “we had made a great accomplishment in creating a good and sturdy fence” said Jerry Miller. 

 

It’s important that the fence stay strong to ensure safety of the livestock. “When we realized that the fence was in desperate need for repair, we all took time out of our day to help patch it up”, said Kathy Jo Cole. Everyone played a role in order to get the task completed as quickly and efficiently as possible. 

 

After you look past the fire ants and the blazing hot sun, it was a great bonding experience with laughter and teamwork for all, which we will remember for years. We plan on coming back over the course of the summer to work with the cows to make sure they don’t lose their progress and to keep the Agriculture land lab looking nice and kept up.

 

Erin McClure is a student and FFA member of Palmetto High School.
