These are some of the events that the Wahkiakum High School FFA chapter and CTE class students have accomplished over the last few months.
Photo 1: When we had the recent flooding in our local area, FFA members went to Skamokawa fire hall and spent a few hours filling sandbags for the use of anybody needing them in our community.
Photo 2: In honor of the Christmas season, FFA members helped out with an annual event of helping the Star Program. This year the Star Program gave us the mission to raise money for socks that could go to children in need. We then went out and bought them to deliver to the Star Program.
Photo 3: Instructor Kyle Hurley took CTE students on a job shadow to see what masons do on a daily basis. The students were able to watch the masons complete their job duties, and then they were able to ask questions and partake in those same job duties with the help of the professionals.
Photo 4: Mr. Hurley took CTE students to Camas to a commercial building to job shadow electricians. While on the job shadow the students were able to see first hand, from the first step to the last, what it takes to get a commercial building up and running. The students were able to get a visual on all the electrical tools it took and were able to practice using them on the job site.
Photo 5: We have our local, district, and state FFA officers. We had the pleasure of hosting two of the state officers for a day in all classes and were able to meet with our student FFA officers to plan and discuss leadership opportunities.
