The Snow College “Ag Club” has been working together to have a successful year with lots of fun memories. For those of you that don’t know, the Snow College “Ag Club” is a group of students who are interested in agriculture and want to be more involved. The club recently hosted their annual FFA field day here at Snow College where they worked together to help high school students prepare for their upcoming state contests.
FFA field day has been going on at Snow for over 40 years. Advisor of the Ag Club, Jay Olsen, says that he can remember coming here when he was in high school. This year was a very successful year with 77 high schools coming to participate in the fun. There were over 1,890 high school students here on campus competing in 10 different contests to help them prepare for the upcoming state contest. Member of the Ag Club Tanner Runolfson said FFA field day was nothing short of a success claiming, “There were a lot of teams there which made it fun for the FFA students as well as the Ag Club members. The turnout was really good.”
Though FFA field day is the biggest thing that the Ag Club puts on, they also do various other events throughout the semester such as socials and bon fires. The club also likes to contribute to community service and has been involved in the cleanup and fence maintenance of the college farm. Kassidee Oakeson has enjoyed being part of the club so far this semester and says, “We have a good president and we all pull together to make activities pull out and make it a good time for everybody.”
The Ag Club is starting out the semester right and plans to continue this success throughout the year. Keep up the great work and remember to thank a farmer; he or she could be providing your next meal!
