Liberty students bring tractors to school for FFA tractor day

Posted:
LIBERTY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Some Liberty students opted to drive something other than their cars to school today.

Thursday was Liberty's FFA tractor day, where students got to bring their tractors to school and display them in the parking lot.

More than 20 tractors, big and small were on display for students and community members to see.

"There's been a few accidents around here lately, and we just thought it'd be a good idea this year to have that done," said Lucas Tennis, a freshman at Liberty High School.

And one Liberty Junior says it's a day many students look forward to.

"It means a lot for a lot of the kids to bring out their own tractors. It means a lot to show all the kids about the farm life and what tractors are because a lot of the younger kids haven't seen it and they're not around it, and it's kind of cool to see their expressions," said Tyler Lentz.

The event also included an ATV safety demonstration that one Liberty student coordinated himself.

The safety demonstration illustrated to students the dangers an ATV can posses if you don't use it properly.
