FFA students (L-R) Nathanael Bennett, Graycie Gonzales, Cristina McHie and Kinsey Nelson reported to school board members Sept. 17, 2019 on their success at this year’s Walla Walla Fair and Frontier Days. Chapter Members had over 1500 entries in the fair - including posters, skill boards, fruits, vegetables, wool, flowers and animals. There were 63 members exhibiting animals - 58 that participated in the Junior Livestock Auction.
Chapter members earned just over $67,000 at the auction. Many of the animals featured in the fair were born and raised on the Walla Walla High School farm. FFA Advisor Arch McHie said the school’s barn serves as the idea lab to support FFA activities and high levels of learning through hands-on experiences.
