Southeast high school FFA students build garden and pond

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) A garden to provide food for students who need it and a pond to give those with disabilities a quiet space.

These are just a few of the projects Wichita Southeast students are working on to improve their school.

Southeast high began an FFA program this year. The students say their high school doesn't have the best reputation but they want to change that.

"We want to strive for our best, work together and be a generally happy community, through all the stuff that goes on just find that positive light," says Jacey Candy, junior at SEHS.

On Saturday, members of FFA participated in a community day building a garden and a koi fish pond on school property.

Southeast students say their agriculture program is unique to city schools and the opportunities through their program will provide education for the students in the classes and even benefit those who aren't.
