Friday marked the seventh annual Animals for Learning event at Henry County High School. The members of Future Farmers of America bring in their farm and household animals to school and host sixth grade science students who visit the students and their animals. Sixth-graders come armed with a handout of questions about the animals, which FFA students help them answer. For example, how much room does a duck need or how many babies can a goat have in a year? There were 32 stations to visit with a total of 53 animals, including several just hatched baby chicks.

Henry County High School will host a “Hoops for Hunger” event May 15 at the Henry County Recreation and Services Park, beginning at noon.
Think of nine people you see on a daily basis; one of those people is probably suffering from food insecurity, according to a news release from Henry County High School student Austin Craigmyle.
The faces of hunger could be faces you see every day, faces you work with, faces you see at church, or faces you go to school with.
