Students Construct Ag Building
Posted on 05/17/2019

Sullivan High School students earned practical, hands-on experience while constructing the new, 28x32 agriculture storage building, located next to the Agricultural Center, behind Sullivan Middle School on Frakes Street.

The building project, which began in the Fall, is nearly complete. The new building will be used to store supplies and tools needed to complete various classroom and FFA projects. “This new building will allow us to have highly-organized storage while maintaining our current facility for classroom/FFA events and projects,” said Kevin Cross, SHS agriculture instructor.

In addition to the many hours of work contributed by the students, Mark Kennedy from KTI Trucking, poured concrete and provided equipment to help set the foundation, and SHS instructor Bill Butler and SWSC bus driver Bill Butler assisted with setting trusses.

Funding for the new building came from following sources:
 “Grants for Growing” funds provided by Tractor Supply Company and National FFA
Foundation
 Southwest School Corporation and Sullivan High School Career and Technical Education
funds
 Monsanto’s “America’s Farmers Grow Communities” Grant
 Sullivan FFA Alumni
