KHS FFA works with team to help Summer Fire Victims
One of the most important traits students learn in FFA is to rise to the occasion when needed and help. We had 42 members from the Tri-Cities schools of Columbia Burbank, Kennewick, New Horizons and Pasco who spent the day working on behalf of two homeowners in the region that lost everything due to the fire. They each learned that one person can make a difference and when you learn to work as a cohesive team you can make a huge impact. Thank you National FFA for the Environmental Grant funding to make this possible, most of all thanks to all the wonderful kids who really worked a full day giving to others in need. Great day to be a proud member of Washington FFA. Thanks for the state officer team showing up and working with the kids. A huge success for all involved.
Congratulations to Alexis and Blair Murphy!
Last weekend these two young ladies closed out their fourth consecutive trip to state. Blair proved to be the fastest sprinter from the Tri-Cities taking 21st in the 50 free and 19th in the 100. She is the reigning MCC 1st team 50 free Sprinter. Alexis got 11th in the 100 breast and 15th in the fly with best times for the season. Alexis was also the 3A MCC top swimmer for earning more individual points than any swimmer from the Tri-Cities at state earning the MCC Swimmer of the Year Award. Great work Murphy Twins!
