Attention Seniors!

February and the remaining months here at Wilson are important for the Senior class. This month Blue Ridge Community College will have a Registration representative come and speak to the Seniors on Wednesday, 2/20 during the Club time in the Auditorium. Information will be given on dates for pretesting and getting acclimated to the campus. All Seniors intending on going to BRCC or have BRCC as a backup are welcome and advised to attend. A lab will be reserved for registering if time is available. If time is not, please stop by and see Mr. Melvin your Career Coach in Room 25.5 next to guidance and set up an appointment to get registered or have any questions you might have answered.

All Seniors who have not had the time to speak with Mr. Melvin on a plan for their career after Wilson please stop by and do so. The sooner you define a career path in life, the greater the overall rewards life has to offer.

FFA News

Submitted By: Josh Whetzel, Chapter Reporter

The WMHS FFA had a very successful fruit sale this past winter. Thank you to all who participated and contributed in this year’s fruit sales!

The top three sellers were:

1.       Mario Litteral

2.       Hannah Cox

3.       Grace Phillips

From February 11-13, we are holding Valentine’s Day flower Pre-Sales. Carnations will be sold for $1. Pre-Sale times will be during all three lunches. So make sure you buy a flower for that special someone to be delivered on Valentine’s Day!

Also in February is National FFA Week, which is always on the week of George Washington’s birthday. This week was designated by the National FFA Board of Directors because George Washington was not only the first president of the United States of America, but he was also a leader in the agricultural industry. At his plantation Mount Vernon in Virginia, he led advancements in conservation techniques such as crop rotation and cover crop. This year the dates are February 18-22. The chapter will be hosting dress up days that include:

Monday- parent/teacher conferences

Tuesday- Farm Equipment Day (Wear your John Deere, International, Ford, etc. shirts)

Wednesday- Carhartt Day

Thursday- Dress Like A Farmer Day

Friday- “Wear Your FFA Jacket To Work”/FFA Spirit Day

National Ag Week will take place on March 18-22. Look out for upcoming dates and events by the FFA for this week!
