Smith said, “My wife would definitely approve of the real maple syrup.”
Cooley barely had a chance to sit down because she was busy supervising, but she knows what she is doing since this was her 24th breakfast. She said it went really smoothly, and added that some years, the weather has played havoc, so she was pretty grateful for everything to have gone so well.
Among those enjoying the breakfast were superintendent Mike Candela; board president and vice-president, Eric Senor and Duane Marcy; and Cyndi Feydo from the board office as well as all the high school teachers. Don Schmidt of the high school science department was excited to win his first PV FFA T-shirt.
Jessica Krulic, this year’s FFA president, expressed the sense of tradition she has felt by being part of the breakfast. As a senior, she felt responsibility, but also a sense of her impending graduation and leaving behind such great times.
Because the PV buildings work on a staggered start time, the primary school teachers came in a little bit later. The enthusiasm and the food all held up through the later expected guests as well. With everyone served and satisfied, the last job was cleanup, and all members were expected to chip in and get it done as well. With all of the fun and the FFA’s hard work, there was truly a sense that not only is breakfast the most important meal of the day, but that the breakfast served at the end of FFA Week is one of the favorite meals of the year, at least at PVHS!
