Although, COVID, put a damper last year when Jerseyville High School’s (JHS) FFA students could attend events however despite the pandemic they have decided they were not going to let it stop them this year. There are many different ways FFA students have found ways to help raise funds and the JHS’s FFA chapter has already begun.
“The students thought it would be a good idea to help out during the Jerseyville City Center Week at the Culture Arts Fair. So we decided to have a food stand,” Mrs. Nicholas, an agricultural and woodshop teacher, said. “It’s going really well and this is just one way we raise money for our national conference that we attend.”
Nicholas added that the FFA students are making wonderful strides this year.
“Some students have won at the Illinois State Fair and the chapter will have a food concession at the Calhoun County Fair,” Nicholas said. “The chapter attended Olden Days Festival last weekend and will be attending the Farm Progess Show.”
