BRUNING — The hallway leading into Siera Meyer's classroom at the high school here is covered with posters depicting different aspects of agronomy and animal anatomy.
The posters represent the work that the seven B-D students have put into the district's fledgling FFA and agriculture education programs. It is the first FFA program in Thayer County.
In a community that includes the headquarters for Norder Supply as well as many other agribusinesses, Superintendent Trudy Clark had been fielding questions about why the district didn't already have a strong ag-based program.
Bruning-Davenport introduced ag education last year with a single course. When that teacher left the district, administrators sought out a teacher who could offer a wide range of ag courses and begin an FFA program.
