From athletics to a DnD club, PIHS has many clubs. On Thursday, September 8, FFA got underway.

FFA is a school club whose motto is “Learning to Do; Doing to Learn; Earning to Live; Living to Serve.” They do a wide variety of activities. They work around the school farm with blueberries, cook food, press apple cider, use biotechnology and even run a greenhouse.

FFA turns out to be for anyone ready to get out of their comfort zone. “It prepares members for leadership and careers in science, business and technology in agriculture,” said Vicki McCurry, adviser of FFA and agricultural science teacher. Co-adviser Shelly Gross thinks it’s important because, “It’s a service organization that helps students learn about occupations who are involved with agriculture in some way.”

One event FFA plans to attend is the Cumberland Fair. FFA usually meets in the agricultural science rooms once a month, usually during period 3 to 4B, according to McCurry and Gross. McCurry always puts reminders on the Daily Bulletin.
