mackay ffa cleanup 10.2

Mackay eighth-grade students pose next to the adopt a highway sign during the Mackay FFA chapter’s annual highway clean-up project.

Mackay FFA members cleaned up a stretch of highway on Sept. 17, as they’ve done every year for more than two decades.

Students donned bright orange vests and nitrile gloves for the task and competed to see who could collect the most trash.

The ninth-graders were recognized for doing the best job for finishing their stretch faster than upperclassmen and picking up the most garbage.
