Charles City FFA and ag class students met with U.S. Senator Joni Ernst earlier this week.
Ernst stopped at the high school to talk ag and economic issues with students and toured the school’s agricultural space. FFA President Senior Drew Staudt says her advice to students was “keep being great people and working hard.” He says he feels his classmates made a strong impression on the Senator in that regard.
Staudt says students have great opportunities in the school’s ag program as well as their welding shop and their new in-the-works STEM lab.
Staudt adds the Charles City FFA Chapter is about 100 students strong and will be having their annual banquet this Sunday (05.09).
