Creekview High School’s agriculture program is growing even more thanks to a generous donation.

Pilgrim’s of Canton donated $5,000 through its Hometown Strong Program to the school’s agriculture program and FFA chapter.

Teacher Pauline Benton said the donation will assist in training FFA members for the Poultry Evaluation Career Development Event, help continue community service programs that feed the food insecure and those in poverty in the community and provide leadership scholarships for students to attend the National FFA Convention.

There are 166 Creekview FFA members pursuing career pathways in equine science, veterinary science, agriculture electrification and agricultural mechanics. They are led by FFA advisors, teachers Pauline Benton and Wyatt Wilkie, under the support of CTAE Assistant Principal Jessica Whitley.
