Bandera high school FFA Chapter already busy
Submitted by Chandler Kate Martin FFA Reporter
The Bandera FFA Chapter has hit the ground running, kicking off the year with a very successful first meeting for the 2013-2014 school year. A total of 73 people attended the fun, yet productive meeting.
Chapter members voted on committees, FFA homecoming representatives, and our donation toward West FFA Chapter.
West High School was leveled after the tragic explosion of the fertilizer plant on April 17, 2013. They are hoping to rebuild their ag program. The Bandera FFA thought they would help them out.
The Bandera Chapter donated $150, then at the meeting, we passed a hat around and the chapter matched the amount donated by the members, donating a total $300 to West FFA.
A few weeks after our first meeting the State FFA officers Ryon Cox and Shelby Eckhardt visited our school to teach us about leadership opportunities in the FFA. The Bandera FFA is excited about the new year and ready to keep it rolling in a positive and successful way.
