Six Southern Door High School students carried on a FFA tradition Friday morning as they drove to class on their tractors.
Cash Nellis, Braden Delveaux, Jorge Gonzales, Matthew Malvitz, David Willming, and Logan Olsen drove their implements to school as a part of the FFA’s spring celebration. The tradition started in 2016 as a way to introduce some of the district’s youngest students to agriculture. FFA Advisor Ann Glowacki says it is an event the students look forward to every year.
Delveaux was happy to finally get his chance to drive a tractor to school.
Kinnard Farms and S&S Jerseyland Dairy allowed two of the students to borrow their equipment for the day.The annual Drive Your Tractor to School Day is usually paired with a “Down on the Farm” animal day, but that event will be postponed until the fall. The Southern Door FFA will host its annual banquet next month.
