On Thursday, Dec. 12, Cortez FFA members participated in a districtwide project making blankets for the Bridge Emergency Shelter. Three agricultural education classes at M-CHS made nine fleece blankets. District 3 FFA President Tierney Wilson came up with the idea for the project because of the cold weather and statistics about homelessness in southwestern Colorado.
