The Future Farmers of America and Floritculture classes visited the State Legislature. They worked with the senators and representatives and explained to them the importance of agriculture education and FFA in public schools. The Floriculture class was able to create boutonniere's for them. It was a really rewarding experience and gave them a small glimpse of what a day at the state capitol is like and how much time and energy goes into making the schools successful for students of all ages.

The purpose of going was to hopefully persuade the senators to vote in favor of keeping agriculture classes in high schools and making sure that they have sufficient funding.
