The Delta FFA Chapter is planning a big event Saturday, March 29 — an oyster fry and chuckwagon western show.
Folks who have been around DHS ag for any amount of time will remember the oyster fry/hired hand auction in the past.
This year, the annual dinner will feature a silent auction and a performance by the Bar D Wranglers. The western stage show features two-time national flatpick champion guitar player Gary Cook and Western Music Association Male Vocalist of the Year Richard Lee Cody. The Bar D Wranglers have performed around the world, played for presidents, and graced the stage at the Grand Ole Opry.
This is going to be a fun event. Tickets cost $25 and are available from any Delta FFA member or at Delta High School. The chuckwagon begins at 6 p.m.
Spring is also a big time for SAE, or Supervised Agricultural Experience programs. This is a requirement for all students enrolled in Intro to Ag.
Students with an SAE learn by doing. With help from their agricultural teachers, students develop an SAE project that incorporates entrepreneurship, a job or internship on a farm or agriculture-based business, a scientific experiment or career exploration. Students who conduct an SAE and keep good records of their progress are eligible for awards at the local, state and national levels.
State FFA degree applications are due March 15. Juniors and seniors with outstanding SAE programs are eligible to apply. This special recognition is attained by just a select few members based on their total agricultural education experience.
Delta's FFA chapter advisor is William Nelson. The 2013-14 officer team is comprised of Kelsie Hartman, president; Aspen Spiker, vice president; Hadassa Graham, secretary; Derrek Johnson, treasurer; Cade Lugard, reporter; and Taylor Jensen, sentinel.blog comments powered by Disqus
