FFA Students Accepting Donations For Grants

Tractor Supply store managers lend a helping hand to Future Farmers of America.

Supply store employees have been accepting donations for FFA grants that could help local students.

A Natrona County High School agricultural teacher believes these grants help in many ways.

"There’s lots of opportunities to purchase lab equipment and materials that we need to function as a hands-on classroom and instructional material which would benefit our students” says teacher Brock Burch.

Burch says animal science and lab equipment can be purchased with grant funding.

The FFA funds also go to the 'Grants for Growing' program.

The 2018 year marks the 90th anniversary of Future Farmers of America.
