Mantachie High School in Mississippi has a long tradition of agricultural education, and the Mantachie FFA Chapter is known for its fundraising programs. FFA advisors C.W. Franks and Joe Rogers oversee two unique projects at the school: a meat processing facility and a sawmill. Students work in the meats lab and at the sawmill to gain valuable skills while they make money to support chapter members and chapter activities.
