The FFA Chapter at Triton Jr.-Sr. High School, sponsored by Ag teacher, Ms. Fischer, celebrated FFA week with a variety of dress up activities. They also provided ice cream to the staff and attended a conference at Swan Lake. Throughout the week, the students held a contest among the student body to vote for the teacher they’d most like to see “Kiss a Critter”.
The top three “vote” earners were 1st place- Mrs. Shaffer, 2nd place- Mrs. Ousley, and 3rd place- Mr. Brown.
Pictured is Mrs. Shaffer, the “winner”- kissing the “critter.” The observing students and staff enjoyed the celebration. The charity receiving the $254.54 that was collected from the weeklong project is .Agribility Breaking New Ground. It is through Purdue.
