McConnellsburg FFA hosted a recruitment event Tuesday, September 15, in order to encourage more students to join. More than 50 students in grades eight through 12 came and participated in the daylong event. The McConnellsburg officer team gave demonstrations on how to raise tilapia, how to take care of a calf, how to raise rabbits and on the current greenhouse landscaping project. Along with the officer team, the McConnellsburg FFA called in Tyler Funk, the Pennsylvania state FFA vice president, and Coty Covert, the Pennsylvania state sentinel. Tyler and Coty discussed their interests in FFA and incorporated everyday life into an agricultural background. Along with the demonstrations, the participants played games that helped build leadership skills and teamwork. Pizza was provided compliments of Lincoln Way Pizza. Anyone in the eighth through 12th grade who is enrolled in an agriculture science class is eligible to join the FFA at Central Fulton. "Our goal this year was to double our membership size," said FFA President Taylor Morton, "and I think we are well on our way."
