Students at Polk County High School now have the hands-on experience of raising and processing chickens from start to finish.
The Polk County Schools Board of Education met earlier this month, where a check was presented to the Polk County FFA Chapter by Jason Davis, NC State FFA Coordinator and Emma Cannon, NC State FFA President, who traveled from Raleigh to present students a check for $4,436.
Former Polk County High School Agriculture teacher Kevin Bailey originally applied for the grant, which was later awarded from the N.C. Tobacco Fund Association and the N.C. FFA Association.
