*  What to do with Orphaned Fawns - Leave them Be!

The program was reinstated in recently.   Luke Shouse, great grandson of Hubert, a graduate of West Platte, received his degree of State FFA Farmer this spring at the state convention in Columbia, MO.  He also has applied for the degree of American Farmer which is awarded in the fall at the National Convention.  
Luke’s sister Emma Shouse, WP class of 2021, was president of the local chapter her senior year.  Luke’s brother Grant Shouse, class of 2022, was vice president his senior year.  Luke’s parents Paul and Lauren were awarded an Honorary FFA degree at the local FFA banquet May 2.
The Shouse family wish to thank Mrs. Carmen Buller, current agriculture instructor and leader of FFA for the past 2 years, for her dedication and hard work with the class of 2024.  You can tell by the enthusiasm from the kids who participate in FFA and so many awards were earned by the students that she cares deeply about her students.
The Shouse ancestors settled in Platte County in 1843 on the farm Luke grew up on, making him the seventh generation to live there.
