ATWATER FFA: Water Rally at the State Capitol    
Posted: 1/1/2019 9:08 PM | Author: Alyssa Carrillo

Nearly fifty Atwater High School agriculture and FFA students joined hundreds of farmers, farm employees, community leaders, state and federal lawmakers, the Atwater High School Band, and other Merced Union High School agriculture program and FFA students in Sacramento last August to rally against what is described as a “state water grab.” The opportunity for students to take part in the event was organized through the Merced County Farm Bureau, Assemblyman Adam Gray’s (D-Merced) office, and Atwater High School’s Superintendent, Alan Peterson. “This was an opportunity for our agriculture students to experience legislative and government policy among their community and agriculture industry partners,”said Atwater High School FFA advisor Kim Macintosh. For many students, it was the first time in Sacramento and the Capitol. “I learned that the water issue expands beyond just farmers and has an effect on all of us,” said Atwater High School agriculture student Jennifer Velazquez.
