In addition, WACO Agriculture Teacher Ethan Fetzer had five students perform a skit on “Avian Flu, the Ethics of Culling flocks.” The skit provided interesting facts concerning common fears of the Avian Flu and effects of Culling Flocks on a farm and the impact on the farmer, his family, and concerns of the public. There was a discussion of Pros & Cons.

The Invocation was given by President Meyer, blessing those attending the meeting and the meal.
