Labor Auction provides needed funding for Marlow FFA chapter

by Toni Hopper

Marlow FFA’s annual labor auction and dinner will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, in the Life Center at First Baptist Church.

“The money raised at the labor auction helps the chapter offset the cost for the rest of the year for things like Carter Development Events, Stock Show, the end of the year banquets and state convention trip,” said Ag instructor and FFA advisor Quaid Kennan.

Students begin setting up the event earlier in the day.

Marlow Public Schools Superintendent Corey Holland recently invited members of the FFA chapter to a school board meeting. The officers performed opening and closing ceremonies for the board members.

“Future Farmers of America is about more than just farming organization as many may think,” Holland said this week. “FFA has a long history of developing students’ potential as future leaders. FFA teaches students about the importance of hard work, integrity, and discipline. These are vital skills our students will be able to utilize to be successful as they move into adulthood.”

Both Central High and Bray-Doyle FFA chapters have already held their annual labor auctions for this school year. More than $41,000 was raised at the CH auction, and over $10,000 at the B-D event.
