Ag Department Open House

By: Alyssa Bayard and Shelby Drake

The Midway FFA Chapter kicked off its year with the Agriculture Department Open House on August 22, 2014 prior to the football game. This was a great opportunity for the parents and students to talk to the new Ag teacher and FFA advisor, Austin Gray, about the upcoming year. Parents were given the opportunity to learn about and sign up to become a part of the FFA Boosters committee. Many parents and students came to the open house and gained new information about the Midway FFA Chapter while enjoying refreshments. Mr. Gray is “very excited” about the upcoming year. 

PALS Volunteer at Salvation Army

By: Mackenze Jones

On August 22 four members of the Midway High School PALS organization took a trip to the Olathe Salvation Army. The group included seniors Jackson Eberle and Laine Mills along with juniors Mackenze Jones and Cassidy Myers. Jim Jensen, PALS director, also attended. The four students and Jensen worked as a team with other regular volunteers to distribute food to citizens in need. Eberle said, “It was sobering to see the conditions some people are living in. I was happy to do what I can to help and I would like to do it more often.” The Midway PALS members volunteer at the Salvation Army every few months and will be returning in October.
