FFA Food Drive - Happy Thanksgiving

Members of the SCHS FFA
As we celebrate our bountiful harvest this Thanksgiving, I want to thank all of the schools and organizations across America and the World that conduct food drives to help the less fortunate.  In our little part of the world, Scott County High School students and educators donated over 30,000 items to assist the food banks in our community.  Our food drive, like many, is led by the Scott County High School chapter of the Future Farmers of America.  The student's leadership along with their advisers have made such a profound difference in hundreds of lives throughout the year.

 I am thankful that every day I get to work with students and educators that find ways to help others.  A simple thank you goes to the FFA advisers (Regina Fritsch, Nathan Sewell and Lindsay Wayne), the officers and members of the Scott County FFA that organized the drive.  The FFA have led this food drive for decades in Scott County and their work and generosity is well documented.  I would also like to thank  Mr. Nick Maxwell (counselor) and the students he organized  for  donating over 8,000 items.
