We also hosted our 2nd Annual Ag Olympics on Friday for the school. We had four teams compete in three Olympic Events. Elementary students on each team participated in the sheep shearing contest by trying to collect the most cotton balls from their sheep. High School and Middle School Students worked together to catch as many eggs in their pillowcases as they could in our Egg Toss Competition, and in the final competition our High School students had to steer the staff members to get their animals back to their pens in the Great Barnyard Escape. Thank you to everyone who participated and supported the 2022 SRC National FFA Week Festivities.
