ALEXANDRIA — A group of Alexandria FFA students took a new approach in getting to school on Friday, May 6.
They drove tractors.
May 6 was "Drive Your Tractor to School Day" — a long-standing tradition that's held as part of the National Future Farmers of America Week, which takes place in February, and the Minnesota FFA state convention that took place April 24-26.
More than a dozen Alexandria FFA members gathered in Gary Zacher's yard with their tractors and took the short drive over to the Alexandria Area High School.
The event gives FFA members a way to cap off the convention and provide added awareness to agriculture.
