Kissing critters

The Southern Local High School Future Farmers of America celebrated FFA Week with dress-up days throughout the week and concluded with Ag Olympics for students in grades 7-12. In addition, the organization sponsored a Kiss-A-Critter contest to raise money for Akron Children’s Hospital. This year’s contest raised more than $625 with Superintendent Tom Cunningham winning the opportunity to kiss a lamb and high school teacher Kyle Exline, who was a close second, having to pucker up to a chicken.
