MS Hammack Project Center opens
FERRIS – At a ribbon cutting last week in Ferris, the Ferris High School FFA saw the expansion of its facilities with the opening of the new MS Hammack Project Center.
New Ferris High School Principal Andru Gilbert said, “The new barn, constructed by Gallagher, expands the capacity of our FFA to support further livestock projects with our students.”
The Ferris High School FFA hosted the kickoff celebration and opening on Sept. 24.
Ferris ISD School Board President Robert Scott, participated in the “rope” cutting celebration to mark the opening of the new space alongside Gilbert.
Current Ag Science teachers, Kirsten Chapman and Megan James, were also in attendance,
Current FFA officers including Chapter President, Gabby Curtis, VP Gillian Gonzalez, Treasurer Reyna Edwards, Reporter Rylee Yarbrough, and Sentinel Skylar Holden were on hand to share in the history of FFA as well as lead games and activities for all members of the family in the new space.
The FFA’s rich history of 90-plus years provides ongoing opportunities for families and the school to work together to grow in personal responsibility, care, and community, which fits in with the purpose of the new barn space for all of Ferris ISD.
The new MS Hammack Project Center has already drawn attention from surrounding districts with area schools actively touring the amenities of the new facility.
“We were honored to host several members of the Hammack family as we acknowledged the long history of Mr. MS Hammack and his work with the FFA and Ferris HS,” Gilbert concluded.
