The Columbus FFA celebrated National FFA week Feb. 20-27 with different activities each day.
On Monday, they kicked it off with the annual Ag Olympics. Various clubs participated in relay races and obstacle course events.
Tuesday, during the lunch period students could join in a game of Trench, approximately 50 students played.
Since they only had three days of school that week, on Wednesday, the chapter had the privilege of hosting a “Meet and Greet” with the National FFA President, Taylor McNeel. She is from Arkansas and has taken a year off of college to fulfill her duties as a National Officer. McNeel was escorted by State FFA President, Sally Albers (Adams-Friendship) and State Vice President, Bryce Krull (Lake Mills) along with the state and national advisors for all of them. Lakeside Lutheran officer team also came with their advisor, Jeff Meske, for the visit. It was an experience the FFA members will reflect on positively.
To finish up their week the members hosted a Donkey Basketball event at Columbus High School on Sunday. Seniors competed against the staff, and juniors competed against the community with the final game being staff against the community.
The winning team was the staff after being tied with the community team when time ran out. To break the tie, there was a dance-off between each team. The staff pulled out all of the stops with a cartwheel.
