Sumter County Middle School Community Partnership with Shivers Makes Agriculture Program Successful
Shiver Lumber Company’s sign board reads, “Local FFA Honey”! The Sumter County Middle School Agriculture & FFA Programs, taught and sponsored by Mr. Brock, is thankful for the support of business leaders like Ms. Kimberly Baker, Store Manager at Shiver’s Lumber. Sumter Middle FFA gets to learn about the importance of pollinators, the health benefits of honey, and how to market a local product. Shiver Lumber Company has been an important community partner in the construction of raised beds, tool and equipment identification, and honey sales. Many alumnus of the FFA Chapter come back to visit and help out. Pictured (left to right) is Josh Campbell delivering a batch of honey to Shiver Lumber’s Kimberly Baker, Store Manager. Thank you Shiver Lumber Company for your support!
