Ag Expo Draws Residents and Candidates

Print More

Suffield’s Agriscience Center held its yearly Ag Expo event in early April, showing off what the program accomplishes and giving the students of this regional magnet school a chance to exercise their ability to communicate. Visitors of all sorts had a great opportunity to see the animals in the large animal facility and several rooms in the main high school building, as well as to tour the classrooms, the fish tanks, the green house and the machine shop. In one big garage were an array of tractors, some in various stages of repair. The event schedule included two tractor parades.

Among the visitors were class groups from Spaulding School. Ag Expo is a friendly petting zoo for those little kids. Some of the visitors were eighth graders from other towns coming with their families in the serious business of planning their own futures. The school offers a wide variety of special interests under its general topic, and, with the help of the FFA program, can provide a good basis for success in many careers.
