8TH GRADE RECRUITMENT FAIR

Recruiting new members is an important part of running a successful FFA chapter. Every year the junior high schools host an endorsement fair where clubs and organizations set up booths to educate the 8th graders. Ava Coull, Daphnee Schlittler, Drew Erickson, Eryn Copeland, Riley Youngers, and Zoey Serapin were given the privilege of running the Wylie FFA both at Cooper Junior High and McMillan Junior High. They set up a wonderful booth and educated hundreds of students about agriculture!
