FFA members attend Flowers on the Hill
In conjunction with National FFA Week, members of the Loretto and Lawrence County High School Chapters of Future Farmers of America were able to attend the annual Flowers on the Hill event in Nashville where they met with state legislators.
Madison Franks (Loretto FFA President)- Flowers on the Hill is a great way to thank the ones that have contributed so much time to the Agricultural community. Attending Flowers on the Hill is also a great way to meet with the state representatives and senators to gain more knowledge about the bills that are underway in the state capital and also fresh up on current events. I have attended Flowers on the Hill for the past 4 years, and the knowledge I have gained through our state representative, Barry Doss, and our state senator, Joey Hensley, is irreplaceable. Flowers on the Hill has allowed me to reach out of my comfort zone and has allowed me to create memories that will last a lifetime!
Ethan McClure (Loretto FFA Secretary)- When we went to Nashville to Flowers on the Hill FFA event, we did a variety of things. First, we went to state representative Barry Doss’ office and he told us about how Lawrence County was growing and improving while decreasing taxes. Next, we went to Senator Joey Hensley’s office, and he talked to us about our education and how important it was. Then we were given a vase of flowers and delivered them to a representative.
Colton Newton (Loretto FFA Historian) - I learned that Flowers on the Hill is an event that thanks all the state legislators in their support Agriculture in the state building. This is where many FFA Chapters gather together and meet their Senators and House of Representatives and ask The questions that they want answered about their county that they don't like and want things or ways changed.
Alex Davis (Loretto FFA Advisor)- Flowers on the Hill FFA Event is a fantastic event for the students to meet with their State Legislature. They are able to obtain a variety of answers on upcoming legislation. The State Legislator discussed the how a bill becomes law, and all the processes that lead up to it being signed by the Governor. Overall, I think that this is a valuable lesson on state government that benefits all students who attend.
