Aledo Ag-Backers and Aledo FFA chapter officers will host a “Meet the Ag Teacher” evening, introducing new agriculture teacher Dave Marcath, from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 20, in the Aledo ISD Ag building classroom.
Aledo Ag-Backers President Melissa Thompson said the get-together will also be a chance for supporters to see the results of the July barn clean up and organization.
This year, the Aledo Ag-Backers provided more than $12,000 in scholarships and awards to Aledo FFA graduates. In 2011, 129 sponsors provided 1,590 individual scholarships worth more than $1.9 million through the national FFA organization.
