Graves high school FFA receive donation for over $5,000 | Schools
GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Graves County High School FFA secretary Tanisha Gills (left) and vice-president Lindsay Holmes accept a donation of some $5,354 to their chapter from Dr. Buddy Ray, owner of Bovine Consulting Associates LLC of Mayfield.
Standing behind the students is Brad Brockman, territory manager with Pfizer Animal Health in western Kentucky. The donation was made possible by a Pfizer Animal Health program. For eligible purchases of Pfizer Animal Health cattle and equine products, a donation was made on behalf of Bovine Consulting Associates LLC, Graves County.
Brockman explained, “Through veterinarians like Dr. Ray, Pfizer has donated $1.1 million to the National FFA and passed the money through its various chapters so the local students can benefit from it.”
Ray said he is pleased that Pfizer has honored his business through the donation.
“We thank Dr. Ray and Pfizer for making this donation to our chapter," Holmes said. "It provides opportunities for us to go to different places and see different things in our study of agriculture.”
The group is shown in the GCHS Agriculture Department’s horse barn, located near the Graves County Schools’ central office on Ky. Highway 121, near Mayfield. Anyone interested in supporting the organization through a donation or volunteering, may contact their local FFA chapter or visit www.FFA.org.
