Advisors report annual breakfast events were a success
Students in Paris and Madison kicked of FFA week with community breakfast at their school.
Paris FFA members greeted the community with locally produced bacon and unveiled a special 12-page section they produced that was inserted into the Salt River Journal.
Josh Bondy, one of two FFA teachers at Paris High School, said the event went well.
Madison FFA teache Joni Fields said the breakfast was an overwhelming success. Those attended were treated to what student called “Momma Fields’ potatoes,” a cheesy concoction prepared by Fields’ mother, Angie Fields.
“We served approximately 180 people this year which is the largest to breakfast has been since I came to Madison in 2015,” Fields said. “This is one of those events that we can keep track of how many were there the year before and how much supplies are use but at the same time we never really know how many to expect or not expect to come. The community of Madison continues to go above and beyond to support our FFA chapter and other school events as well which for our kids that’s huge.”
Fields said that the Madison High School FFA has 60 members, which includes 16 junior higher schoolers.
“Our goal with FFA week is to do as much giving back and interacting with our community and the rest of our schools as possible so they can see what it is we do and how passionate our members are about the FFA organization and what it stands for. We are not able to do anything that we do without the support of our school and community,” she said.
