CAPE GAZETTE -Friday, January 12 - Monday, January 15, 2007 - 111 Continued from page 110 While students primarily study animals and plants, not everyone pursues a career in farming or ani- mal husbandry. FFA students are also taught the importance O f mar- keting themselves and life after high school. Danielle Geyer, 20, .of Lewes, returned to Cape to support the younger FFA members. Geyer, a -former Cape chapter vice presi- dent and president is now a colle- giate member of FFA at the University of Delaware Where she studies elementary education. Signs adorn the manufactured home that serves as a classroom for Cape's FFA members. "This is the Ag room, but we left the live- stock to pasture," reads one mes- Cr i " ' . ' Cr sae. Reptiles and rodents ca,es : line the back wall. Opposite the in-house mini-zoo, Cape students met with their national counter- pa.rts and discussed college choice and real-l! fe experiences. Kacy Baugher, a University of Illbiois student and national FFA secretary gave Cape's FFA President Leigh McIlvain a hug: A T-shirt was hung behind the pair with the top 10 reasons to be a FFA member. At the top of the list was, "Meet new people." Baugher discussed her desire to pursue a career in journalism with Mcllvain, who questioned Baugher about career choice and college life. For Mcllvain, by meeting the national: members, she enlarged her network beyond the Cape Region by way of Baugher, who represents nearly 5,000 FFA members across the nation. : : Contact Kevin Spence at kspcnce@cap gazette.com.

BIE to present 'What in the World' Jan. 22 The Delaware Business, Industry, Education Alliance (BILE) is presenting a What in the World? program to help to posi- tively influence elementary school students into looking at careers that require science, math or a technology background. Long Neck Element a:ry School will host the program from 8:30 to t0:30 a.m., Monday, Jan. 22, for the fifth grade; approximately 100 students will attend. The presenters are a varied group with substantial experience in their fields. Those taking part include representatives from the Delaware State Fire School, Delaware Rural Water Association, DNREC, Sussex County Department of Libraries and a dental hygienist. Each presenter brings an object that probably wouldn't be recog- nized by the students or at least wouldn't be "recognized in the context the presenter is illustrat- ing. Then they explain how that helps them do their job and how math, science or technology is important to their jobs. The pre- senters speak for about 10 min- utes to each group of students. The students rotate to other pre- senters in order to be exposed to a wide base of careers. The organization is actively recruiting volunteers for this pro- gram in Sussex County.
