COVINGTON, Ga. — The Newton College and Career Academy FFA chapter paid it forward by paying off all lunch debts students had occurred before Thanksgiving.
Led by the NCCA FFA officer team, the chapter felt that by helping students by paying off debts they would be able to make an impact in their school and truly exhibit what it means in the FFA motto by "Living to Serve."
"Our officer team really wanted to give back in a big way before the Thanksgiving Break," NCCA FFA Student Adviser Addison Malcom said. "We couldn't think of a better way to show our appreciation to our school and our students and members than by paying it forward and paying off student lunch debts. It's really cool to know that even though we are just in high school, our work through our chapter is allowing us to make a difference."
The chapter paid off a total of $556.28 in student lunch debts.
