On Sunday April 14, from 4-8p.m. Anna’s Country Kitchen hosted a tri-tip fundraiser to help support Burney High School Students raise money for their second CA Ag Focus Field Trip.
The students are participating in the Career and Technical Education (CTE) Alternative Leadership Pathway for Ag School based High School 4-H. Twenty-three students are participating in the class and 20 students will be going on the trip.
Students helped to take orders and serve customers in two shifts as part of the fundraiser.
The CTE Alternative Leadership Pathway is being conducted through the cooperative extension program at UC Davis as part of the University of California Agricultural and Natural Resources Division. For their three day field trip the students will visit multiple locations. First they will go to Sonoma County to study livestock breeding. Next they will go to UC Davis to visit a veterinary hospital and also study aquaponics. The students are working toward the goal of using aquaponics in the greenhouse at BHS. Finally, the students will travel to San Mateo County to visit various sites.
According to Kari Rose, Ag Science Teacher at BHS, “Agriculture is the avenue for learning a host of lifeskills. Whether students pursue an Ag related career or not, the skills they learn in this program will help prepare them for success.”
