The Williamsfield chapter of the FFA is playing a key role in a statewide effort to get textbooks to our sister schools in Liberia. For the past few weeks, Mr. Rigg and our students have been very busy collecting books from neighboring schools that were no longer in use as teachers and students here in Illinois transition to using more and more digital learning resources. The book drive will culminate at the state FFA convention in June, where school districts from across the state will contribute their unused textbooks to the cause. The statewide collection of books will then make its' way to the small gym here in Williamsfield Schools for warehousing. Our students will lead the collection, cataloging, and distribution effort, learning many valuable lessons about Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics along the way. We are very thankful for the opportunity to help increase literacy levels in our global community. We couldn't be more proud of Mr. Rigg and our students for accepting this challenge!
The 2014 graduation ceremony was one to remember. Great music, powerful speeches, emotional farewells, and thousands of dollars in college scholarships. On behalf of the Class of 2014, Williamsfield Schools would like to thank everyone who made the evening so special. We would like to send a special thank you to Congressman Aaron Schock for taking the time out of his busy schedule to speak at our event. We would also like to thank Mr. Zack Binder for making the journey home to send a personal message to our outgoing class. And of course, we would also like to acknowledge the amazing feat of valedictorian Logan LaFollette, who simultaneously gave a spectacular graduation speech and helped the ROWVA-Williamsfield 4x200m relay team qualify for the state track meet. Well done Logan!
Congratulations Class of 2014...you will be missed!
