Superintendent Weber introduces David Turner, who was hired this past week as the new ag teacher and FFA advisor. Weber, the former FFA advisor and ag teacher, was hired as Freedom Public Schools Superintendent.

New Interim Superintendent Bryant Weber and Principal Michelle Shelite served hot dogs to the parents and children who streamed in to attend the school's open house. The open house gave everyone a chance to see changes made over the summer, like new lockers or different parking.

New staff were on display: Samantha Wilson is the new third- and fourth-grade teacher, Austin Beene is the new PE teacher and coach, David Turner is the new ag teacher and FFA advisor, and Rhonda Harris is the new head cook.

The Freedom FFA chapter held a meeting during the open house so that students could meet their new ag advisor, Turner, and get started on their first fundraiser: selling Blue & Gold.

Attendees also learned that the 2018 and 2019 yearbooks have arrived, and can be purchased at the school office. The 2018 yearbooks sell for $25 and the 2019 for $35.
