FFA Trip to AEE Day at NCSU

On Saturday, March 25th, nineteen CMS FFA members boarded a bus and went to NC State University. The event was AEE Day, which stands for Agricultural and Extension Education Day. The purpose was to allow FFA members from across the state to come together and learn about leadership, teamwork and more about NCSU. The first event was all about diversity and labels and how it affects all of us; the group did an activity where they faced a wall and if the instructor said something that applied to you, you would turn around and see who has what in common. After that activity, we discussed how each of our labels makes us different, which is great because we can use them to our advantage. After that workshop, several NC State students took us on a tour of campus and we learned some fun facts, like how the college’s original colors were pink and blue and how the mascot Tuffy the wolf has been replaced 3 times. We saw several of NC State’s well known landmarks like the brickyard, the bell tower, the free expression tunnel and the Court of Carolina’s. After the tour of NCSU, we went to a grassy area on campus where we did a leadership activity in which we were told to match an animal with our names then say our name as well as memorizing others (ex. Jellyfish Joey, Jaguar Jacob, Monkey Mackenzie). Next, we ate lunch at the Talley Student Center and checked out the student bookstore before heading to Doak Field, NCSU’s baseball stadium. There, we watched NC State play in their season opener against Austin Peay and we cheered for the Wolfpack. All in all, it was a great field trip and all of the FFA members who went said they had a fun day.
