Blood Drive Results

On Saturday, November 19th, the Class of 2017 hosted a blood drive in conjunction with the American Red Cross.  We had 29 donors come and collected 25 units of whole blood and 1 unit of double reds for a total of 27 units or 78 people will benefit from these donations.  Our goal was 35 units.  Our numbers were low due to the Whiteford’s football team participating and WINNING BIG on Saturday.  It drew many away who normally or would have given. 

Winners of the Border Raffle were ... Mrs. Linda Groch (Ohio State) and Mrs. Sheila Smiddy (Michigan).  Congratulations!

The Senior Class would like to thank all who participated and gave the Gift of Life.  Our next Blood Drive is scheduled for Saturday, January 21, 2017, so plan on giving then.  Sign up early to receive your choice of time.

Proud moment for Whiteford's Agri-Science Program!!!

Congratulations to our Whiteford Ag Science and Whiteford Ag Explore students for their outstanding performance during the recent FFA Boiler Contest. The middle school “McChicks” team took State Champ honors and the middle school “Poultry Power” team took 3rd place Gold out of 17 middle school teams. 142 teams participated at the high school level with “Thomas and His Chicks” finishing with a 7th place/Gold. Other respective place finishers were Hot Chix,12th/Gold, Big Chicken 21st/Gold, 7 Chicks 30th/Silver, $quad 40th Silver, and NA (Home) 46th/Silver. The primary goal of the Michigan FFA Broiler Project Program is to enhance students’ knowledge in animal husbandry, science, mathematics, English, and other academic subjects. Moreover, in this academic achievement endeavor, students participate in real world experiences by raising the biggest birds possible in the shortest period of time using safe and ethical industry recommendations. Agriscience and natural resources education programs throughout Michigan have found that this innovative and creative educational thrust adds enormous value to FFA chapter program of activities. The Michigan FFA Broiler Project Program has been a hallmark and signature thrust in Michigan because it has assisted students in developing skill sets in problem-solving, working in teams, managing time, and other personal development areas. A special thanks to teachers Nathan Fleshman and Jake Gust for their time and efforts in preparing these students for this, as well as other contest and leadership experiences.
