Bolivar Students Drive Tractors to School, Celebrate National FFA Week


BOLIVAR, Mo. — Here’s something you wouldn’t see every day.

Some students in Bolivar continued a yearly tradition and drove tractors to school Friday morning to celebrate national Future Farmers of America Week.

A high school sophomore told us farming is just part of his family history.

FFA advisor Ashley Brown said she’s seen growth in the agriculture program and talked about the change she’s seen in agriculture over the last few years.

“My dad grew up as a farmer, I mean, it’s in our blood,” Raif Fullerton, a high school sophomore, said.

“The students and their projects may not be as large scale, but they’re more diverse and different categories of agriculture that are more nontraditional,” Ashley Brown, agriculture teacher and FFA advisor, said.

Gov. Mike Parson is even getting in on this effort. He drove his tractor to work earlier this week.
