AFC FFA was featured in this month’s issue of Shaw Media’s “Ag Mag.” Visit the link below to read (p 28-33) about the great things our AFC students are doing in the community. “Earning a statewide Ag in the Classroom Volunteer of the Year Award is no small task. It takes hard work, dedication, and commitment to the community. It’s not as easy as ABC. But it is as easy as AFC.” https://issuu.com/shawmedia/docs/svm_agmag_021023

⭐️Congratulations to our Students of the Month⭐️
The Horticulture class has been working on food preservation by using the new freeze dryer. They have tested multiple products in the freeze dryer and then acted as quality control to taste them and see which products they liked. Salt water taffy, Skittles, and Jolly Ranchers were big hits. Fruit slice candy, Little Debbie cakes, and cheesecake sounded good but didn't work out too well. Apples and pears are in the next batch - we shall see how it goes!
The AFC Jr/Sr High School NHS students assisted students (Elementary, Junior High and High School) this week in making our community a little bit brighter.
