Mackay FFA featured in national magazine
The Mackay FFA Chapter was featured in the fall 2016 issue of FFA New Horizons magazine, which is sent to all FFA members throughout the United States. The article featured Vernon Roche, who had worked as the FFA advisor at the Mackay Jr.-Sr. Highschool for 27 years when he retired in 2012. The article described Mr. Roche’s work in aquiring federal surplus to benefit the local agriculture education program. The article highlighted a jet engine that a student asked if he could try to get running. Before long the student found success, and he went on to be a successful mechanic.
