7/27/11 – The Columbus area Ag Community would like to see the bi-annual scheduling of the High School class in Large Animal Care continued. The FFA has approached the School Board with a proposal to fund the class for the 2011-2012 School year with donations from local agribusiness leaders. While fundraising for school events is not unusual, private funding of specific school courses is another matter. School officials and a dozen members of the Ag community continue to meet. The School Board will be getting an update on the discussions at their August meeting.
