Ms. Tessa Meyer: I will be starting my 3rd year of teaching this year and will be teaching Agriculture Education along with being the FFA Advisor. I'm most excited to see the students get involved in learning about agriculture and FFA. My hobbies outside of school include anything outside (kayaking, walking, learning to golf badly, etc.) and getting to know the community. Welcome to Titan Nation! #titannation
Dear Mr. Lewis and Mr. Simington, As Iowa State Fair FFA Poultry Superintendent I wanted to thank you for the amazing FFA members you have working as ushers at the Iowa State Fair this year. Kenzie DeMoss and Josi Reiman probably could have volunteered for a job that was a lot less work on a hot day, but they were two of the six ushers that volunteered to set up all of the poultry cages in the poultry barn. It is refreshing to see students that don’t complain, follow directions the first time and tackle a job that they didn’t necessarily have to do. They represented your community, school, and FFA chapter extremely well today. Thank you, Derek Straube #titannation #titanffa #titanproud

When Adri was looking for a project, I challenged her to be creative. Challenge met! She found a photo of a project she was interested in, worked with our end-of-semester time schedule, put in hours when others were opting to not be at school and accomplished her goal.
THANK YOU, Mr. Clouse for your years of dedication to the students of Graettinger-Terril and Ruthven-Ayrshire Community School Districts! You will truly be missed. Congratulations on your retirement!
