The Future Farmers of America (FFA) of Troup County celebrated the second annual Agriculture Day at the Troup County Agricultural Center on Wednesday.

FFA clubs from all high schools in the Troup County School System attended the event, which featured speakers from the House of Representatives, information about colleges, leadership and team building, and an opportunity to get up close and personal with several animals.

Jessica Bowden, AG teacher at LaGrange High, said Agriculture Day, or AG Day, was organized by each high school agriculture teacher. Students from all high schools also participated in the event.

Austin Tucker of Troup High said he enjoyed sitting and working with three other teachers to dress it up for the kids.

“I heard they liked it last year and hopefully they like it this year,” Tucker said. “I hope it’s something we can continue to do for them.”

Ashton Wheeless of Callaway High said it was amazing to see all the kids come together.

“As a teacher at Callaway, I often see other students at competitions, but to bond with them here has been amazing,” Wheeless said. “It’s really nice to see how much they appreciate it and to be able to make a connection.”

This year, Diverse Power provided the event with an educational grant that helped provide the students with resources for the day.

“The scholarship is awarded annually for educational purposes. You provide the description of the event and we were blessed to have the opportunity to share, so we provided lunch, T-shirts, guest speakers, everything that it would have cost us to spend on the day was sponsored by Diverse Power,” Bowden said. “We are very fortunate to have a leader in the business community who is invested in our students and the county.

Savannah Farrell of LHS said the idea of ​​bringing all the FFA clubs together was to work toward a common goal.

“The three schools are very competitive because we compete against each other,” Farrell said. “All of us represent agriculture in Troup County when we go out and compete. We’re not always in competition with each other, it allows us to be like friends with people who are just advocating for agriculture in Troup County in general.
