“It’s important for people to know that FFA is more than ag and  farming,” Ashland FFA president and Southern Boone High School senior, Millie Plunkett said Monday. 

Plunkett and her fellow student members in  the Ashland  FFA have managed to keep fairly busy, amid cancellations of club trips and some in-person events due to the pandemic. Despite the barriers presented to them, the group has been able to accomplish a handful of projects this school year.

Recently, they spent in-class and after school time building equipment for the dog park in town. The products made include moving platforms, a balance beam and dog toys.
