Troy FFA Students Visit

 

On November 21st, 2008, we were visited by five students who represented the Troy FFA. The team consisted of students KaRonna Bass, Dakota Fleming, Alyssa Spoonts, and Vincent Provasek, and Preston Roberts.  They were accompanied by their Agricultural Science Instructor, Mindy Howard.

 

They were on their way to the 2008 State FFA Leadership Development Event at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas.  They were among the top 20 teams to get to the state level.    They debated the pros and cons of Wind Energy in the United States.  Scientists and Technicians at the lab made suggestions and participated in a question and answer session.
