FFA programs at both Charles B. Aycock High School and Rosewood High School recently each received $5,000 grants for upgrades to the programs from the N.C. Tobacco Trust Fund Commission. Rosewood used its funds to add ventilation and permanent pens to its livestock facility and upgraded the watering system in the greenhouse, while CBA used the funds to buy new welding machines and a metal cutting machine.
