Exciting things are happening within Anson High School’s Career and Technical Department (Agriculture).
On Oct. 18, “Food Lion Hunger Relief Day,” AHS students had the opportunity to attend the N.C. State Fair, where they received some up-close experiences within agriculture. Among the rides and great food, there were plenty of education exhibits (crops, natural resources, live animals and more) that helped give insight to all facets of agriculture, for those who had never seen anything like that before.
The department also had visits from Anson County’s Fire Department/Fire Marshal, to teach the students about Tractor and Farm Safety, and is holding a Fall Plant Sale, with lots of hanging baskets, and pansies. The department is also preparing for its first FFA Dairy Evaluation Career Development Event Nov. 14-15.
