Updates On Wayne Ag/FFA Program, Vision For The Future During Community Breakfast

WAYNE – Plan on joining a mid-week community breakfast with discussion of the Wayne Community Schools Ag/FFA program.

According to a release from the Wayne Community Schools (WCS) Foundation, Agriculture Educator Ms. Toni Rasmussen will give an update about the Ag/FFA program while talking about the future of the program on Wednesday, June 15 from 7 – 8 a.m.

Foundation Executive Director, Brandon Foote is in his fourth year and said a similar event was held five years ago leading into the Ag/FFA program.

“So, now Ms. Rasmussen and some of the current students are going to come in and talk about what they’ve done in the past five years” said Foote. “I mean it’s a program that’s just exploded for the school. Lots of success which wouldn’t be possible without the school support but also the community support.”

The event will be held at the Wayne Fire Hall (510 Tomar Drive) again from 7 – 8 a.m. as everyone is welcome to attend.

The free breakfast will be catered by Tacos & More.

Foote added the Foundation gets a lot of donations for the Ag/FFA program.

“So, it’s something that we always want to help support,” Foote added. “Anything in the school that we can help with is great but especially when we can see a program that’s just booming like that. That means a lot of kids are interested in it.”

The Wayne Community School Foundation meets on the first Monday of each month and is made up of nine members.

The Foundation hosted their 12th annual alumni tournament this past April (Easter weekend) where 167 former Blue Devils (basketball for men/volleyball for women) raised over $3,700. From the 18 seniors receiving WCS Foundation Scholarships it will total over $17,000.

The All-Class Reunion is also scheduled for Saturday, July 9 at the City Auditorium during the Wayne Chicken Show. Sons of Satan will perform and all are welcome to attend the free event.

Reach out to Foote at the Jr/Sr High School at 402-375-3150 or visit waynecommunityschoolsfoundation.com to donate.

“People can always donate to anything they want to,” Foote mentioned. “They can jut write on the memo line of a check, we have a drop-down (website) where they can pick stuff, if you were passionate about something when you were in school, you can always donate to that.”
