In May, Meigs county fourth graders all met at the county fairgrounds for a day of fun and education. They rotated through multiple stations learning about different aspects of agriculture with presentations from Ohio State University Extension – Highland County, Southern FFA, Jimmy Will, Meigs County Soil & Water Conservation District, Meigs FFA, Beka Setzer, Ohio State University Extension – Meigs County, and Greg Bailey.
The Alexander and Amesville Elementary’s also had an Ag Day of their own this year as the Athens Soil & Water Conservation District and Federal Hocking FFA brought the stations to the schools.
