New BCHS Greenhouse Now Open For Business

The Braxton County High School Greenhouse is now officially open. Community members gathered on April 28 at 1:00 in the afternoon for the ribbon cutting ceremony.
Josh Porto, Ag Instructor welcomed those in attendance and thanked everyone who helped to complete the project.
FFA President Ellen Collins led everyone with the Pledge of Allegiance and Rick Garavaglia provided an opening prayer to start the event.
Delegate Brent Boggs spoke briefly to the small crowd about the importance of the greenhouse and the CTE programs at the high school for the students. He stated work needed to continue in building the CTE programs, academics and athletics at the high school.
Ag Instructor Porto and FFA President Collins used a set of hedge shears to cut the ribbon on the new greenhouse to end the ceremony.
Those in attendance were invited to look through all of the beautiful flowers, plants, and succulents and to make purchases once the ribbon was cut; and several went home with greenery.
