Kamiakin Students Teach Agriculture at Family-Oriented Event

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash--  It was hard to miss the excitement if you were near Yokes Fresh Market in Pasco on Saturday.

Families got the chance to carve pumpkins, bar-be-que, and learn about agriculture, all through fun activities.

The free event is put on by an agriculture class at Kamiakin High School.  The goal of the event is to teach students leadership skills while teaching children the importance of agriculture.

"The idea was to try and provide a free activity that would bring kids out and give them something that was harvest-associated, teach them a little about agriculture, and to provide some fun activities for them," says Denise Senor, an agricultural teacher at Kamiakin.

This is the second year the class has done this type of event.  We asked Denise how excited students were to hold a school event on the weekend, and she laughed, saying this was the one event students were most looking forward to.
