Its the end of the school year, everything is coming to an end. The sports, the grades, and the long hours sitting in the classroom. But some organizations are given ‘er full tots. FFA still goes through the whole summer. The fair is one of the most favorited activities still to come this year!
“My favorite time of the year is showing horses at the fairs and helping at the FFA barn, petting area,” said Junior Katie Manz.
The summer is packed with camps, retreats, and all sorts of fun filled adventures. Fitting stuff in, in the summer is very hard for our BHS teacher and FFA advisor Kari Stai. She has a part time job along with the FFA crazy packed summer.
“The first summer activity is an officer retreat, this year we have 8 officers and we go and learn all about being a leader and go swimming, eat dinner and all kinds of fun stuff for one week,” said Stai.
One of our BHS seniors, Andrew Krause, is the first Minnesota state FFA officers in 12 years. He will be busy the whole summer.
“I am at every camp, retreat, and any FFA activity going on in Minnesota. At one time I will be going for 30 days straight, not including the fairs, County and State,” said Krause.
